Antoine Griezmann rejects a new contract at Atletico

The Frenchman is all set to become a Barcelona player in the summer if Le10Sport is to be believed. The outlet claims that a deal has already been agreed for the 26-year old to join in the summer when his release clause becomes €100 million, a good price for a top player in the current market.

Further, the report states how Atletico have tried to extend Griezmann’s contract, despite renewing it recently last summer. However, the forward rejected the club’s advances, showcasing his desire to play for Ernesto Valverde’s side.

Thus, Barcelona are slowly but surely gaining in their quest to land one of the best attackers in world football who is already well-versed with the demands of playing for a top team as well as has the tools required to succeed in Spanish football.
