Griezmann Will Sign For Barcelona, Says Atleti CEO
Antoine Griezmann will play for Barcelona next season, according to Atletico Madrid CEO Miguel Angel Gil Marin.
Griezmann announced at the end of the 2018-19 season that he was drawing the curtain on his five-year stay in the Spanish capital.
The France international has not yet revealed what his next move will be, despite making his Atletico departure public, but Gil Marin has no doubts about where his future lies.
“I’ve been certain where Griezmann will play next season since March,” Gil Marin told Movistar on Wednesday. “He will play for Barcelona.”\
Recent comments from Griezmann, however, suggest that he is running out of patience with the Blaugrana and could even consider a move elsewhere.
“As I said, I know where I want to go,” he explained to reporters following France’s 4-0 defeat of Andorra on Tuesday.
“I am also keen to get this over with as quickly as possible. I don’t know if I will stay in La Liga.”
Griezmann joined from Real Sociedad in 2014. Last season he helped Atletico win the Europa League.
