COPE's 'El Partidazo' reports that the relevant people at Atletico Madrid are now preparing the finer details of the French striker's new deal. Aside from increasing his buyout clause it would also see Griezmann recieve a huge pay rise, earning €23m per season.

Ready to sign

In fact, some sources suggest that Griezmann could sign his new contract by the end of this week, in Lyon, which is very close to where Griezmann was born.
