It’s a funny summer that Antoine Griezmann is living. Returning to Atlético de Madrid just a year ago, the tricolor striker was already at the heart of crazy rumors. An exchange with Cristiano Ronaldo? A sale to make room for the Portuguese? Every day, the name of the one who is loaned for two years by Barça – with an obligatory purchase option – has been mentioned in the Spanish media.
Yet, according to Mark, it will always be red this season. For the Iberian newspaper, there is no doubt, and the article published this Tuesday wants to put an end to all rumors. Not only the Mâconnais will not leave the club, but in addition he is untouchable for Diego Simeone, who thinks he will have a great season.
The principal concerned has never really wanted to leave, and has always wanted to continue the Colchonera adventure. However, he is aware that his 8 buts registered last season are not enough, and hopes to do much better. This is also what the staff expect, who have no doubts about their abilities, but expect more from the French international.
While waiting to see what happens with Cristiano Ronaldo, Griezmann will be the indisputable starter, alongside Felix who also has things to prove. You will have understood it, there will be no departure from Grizi this summer.
