Atletico confident on saving Griezmann in squad

Atletico believe Antoine Griezmann will stay at the Vicente Calderon this summer, says Sky Sports’ Spanish football expert Guillem Balague.

“The situation has not changed. He has agreed nothing with any team and Atletico think he will stay,” he says.

“The fact that Diego Simeone is staying will help his decision. Atleti want to reward him with an improved contract and a bigger buyout clause.”

To recall, several clubs including Manchester United and Real Madrid are ready to break the bank to sign the French striker whose transfer fee will surely exceed 100 m euros.
