Atletico: Griezmann, well the end of the galre? -Football

Sentenced to play luxury substitutes since the start of the season due to complicated negotiations between Atletico Madrid and FC Barcelona around his purchase option, Antoine Griezmann should regain regular status soon. The two clubs are close to reaching an agreement.

Griezmann starts all Atletico games on the bench

Antoine Griezmann (31) is going through a complicated period. Since the start of the season, the striker on loan from FC Barcelona has not started a single meeting as a starter with Atletico Madrid.

This choice of Diego Simeone has nothing to do with the level of the French international, author of 3 goals in 6 appearances. Indeed, it is a strategy on the part of the Colchoneros so as not to activate its purchase option, fixed at 40 million euros and automatic if the Habs participate in 50% of the matches of their team. Knowing that a meeting is considered to be played from 45 minutes on the field.

A downgraded call option

But L’Equipe announces in its edition of the day that the two clubs are in the process of reaching an agreement to lower the option to buy 25 million euros. This would put an end to the pressure exerted by Atletico in this file and would sign a return to normal for Grizou, who was beginning to show signs of annoyance internally in the face of a blocked situation as the World Cup in Qatar looms. .

Determined to find his best level for the World Cup, the Mconnais had chosen to stay this summer in Madrid, in a city and a club where he feels good. Approaches from Arsenal, Manchester United and Juventus Turin did not change the player’s mind. The season should finally really start in the coming weeks, a definitive agreement between the two clubs long awaited during the international break.
