Meanwhile, Atletico president Enrique Cerezo has now opened up on Simeone’s response to the news Griezmann will be leaving his side.
Speaking at a radio show, Cerezo said:
Simeone is disappointed, like the others,
He was determined to leave and there was no chance of convincing him.
I don’t know or care [who Griezmann’s next team will be]. But when a team wants to pay a release clause, it’s normal to communicate and we haven’t received any messages from anyone just yet.
Wherever he goes, I hope that he is treated the same as he was here… and good luck!
However, Okay Nigeria understand that Barcelona are in works of signing the French player for a sum of €120m (£104m).
