The Atletico Madrid is limiting itself to the clauses of the contract that it signed with the FC Barcelona so as not to end up paying the 40 million euros of the obligation to purchase Antoine Griezmann and there is a lot of controversy around this situation. The French striker is playing in the second half and never exceeds 45 minutes per game, which is why they do not count as a game played, it seems that this could change sooner rather than later.
according to account Sports worldIt seems that Barcelona would now be willing to sit down and negotiate with Atlético for the final sale of Griezmann without trying to collect those 40 ‘kilos’, in fact, they would accept a lower amount and very close to what the mattress team offered in the summer. Last market the colchoneros put 20 million euros on the culé table to sign Griezmann, the azulgrana stuck to the figure that they put in their agreement, this infuriated the Madrid team and they also decided to do the same, pressing to such an extent that the Barça already sees the possibility that Griezmann could end up leaving for free, for this reason they would have contacted Atlético to reach an understanding, but they will not accept a figure lower than 25 million euros.
The footballer is interested in an agreement
Antoine Griezmann He is the big loser of this agreement since he is not being able to be a starter with Atlético de Madrid and this, although he is not worried since he has the confidence of Diego Simeone, if he starts to piss him off in case it affects him for the World Cup in Qatar . Be that as it may, both clubs seem willing to amend this problem and reach an agreement in the coming months.
