Antoine Griezmann will he return to Atlético Madrid this summer? The soap opera is far from over. While the French international would be leaving FC Barcelona this summer, Enrique Cerezo, the president of the Colchoneros, was in favor of a return of the 30-year-old striker. However, Cerezo reconsidered his remarks and denied the information of the Spanish press, which evoked contacts between Barça and Atlético for an exchange between the Frenchman and Saúl Ñíguez.
“As far as I know, there is no negotiation. As far as Miguel Ángel Gil (the general manager of Atlético), I imagine that is not the case either, he would have told me. Griezmann is a Barcelona player ”, he explained to the press, ahead of Atlético’s friendly match against Numancia. However, the Catalan press explained that Barça would not be against a sale of the French striker in order to extend Lionel Messi. The summer should therefore still be hectic for Antoine Griezmann, under contract with Barcelona until 2024.
