Antoine Griezmann announces decision to stay with Atletico Madrid
Antoine Griezmann has announced his decision to reject Barcelona and remain an Atletico Madrid player next season during a documentary on Thursday.
There has been much speculation surrounding the Frenchman and his future after another brilliant season individually.
A deal with Barcelona seemed to be pretty much agreed with Atletico Madrid but it came down to the player’s decision.
Claiming that the process was drawn out would be an understatement, with Griezmann refusing to give anything away for weeks.
Though, he announced that he would make his decision known in a documentary called ‘The Decision’ on Thursday night.
At the end of the 30-minute production, the forward finally gave the answer that all football fans had been waiting for.
That decision was that he would remain in Madrid with Atletico and reject advances from Barcelona.
This will come as a huge blow to Barcelona who looked set to sign the player but his decision to stay will be music to the ears of all Atletico Madrid fans.
Speaking during the documentary, he explained that the club were doing all they could to continue growing.
That came after the club made the huge £52.7million signing of Thomas Lemar this week.
“Atletico are doing everything they can to keep the team growing; it’s amazing, they’re making a lot of efforts, I cannot stand it, I need to tell people that I want to stay,” he explained, as quoted by the Daily Mirror.
