Atletico Madrid confirms Griezmann has submitted transfer request
Antoine Griezmann has confirmed he is leaving Atletico Madrid, in a video posted to the club’s official Twitter account. The France forward only signed a five-year contract extension last summer, but has now said his time with the club has come to an end.
Last year, it appeared Griezmann was poised to move to Barcelona, But he made a dramatic u-turn, airing his intention to remain with Atletico during an infamous video reveal. Talk of Barca retaining an interest in the 28-year-old has rumbled on from that point, with another approach mooted for this summer.
