After the dinner between Atletico’s Gil Marin and Barcelona’s Mateu Alemany, what’s clear is that Antoine Griezmann will stay 100 per cent at Atletico Madrid next season. The forward, on loan from Barcelona, has a two year loan deal with a 40m obligatory buy clause after the second year, if Antoine played at least 50 per cent of minutes.
Simeone and Atletico are content with Griezmann and will respect the clauses. However they were looking for another way to pay, hoping not to have to stump up the cash, and a player swap option could be involved.
Griezmann has eight goals - the last came in January - and six assists in 37 official games. However Cholo likes the striker still.
