Antoine Griezmann Drops Huge Hint On Future

Atletico Madrid chief Miguel Angel Gil Marin admits they expect Antoine Griezmann to move to Barcelona.

But according to Gil Marin, there is only one feasible destination for Griezmann.

While the Frenchman's exit announcement came as a shock to many, it wasn't a surprise for the top man in the Atleti offices.

"I am very certain where Antoine will play, we have known since March", the director explained to Movistar Plus' Toros on Wednesday. But Atletico Madrid ended the season without a single trophy and that prompted the France captain to leave the club this summer.

Part of the motivation behind such a delay lies in the details of Griezmann's Atletico contract, which was renewed amidst great fanfare and with a video produced by none other than Gerard Pique last summer.

DAILY POST reported last month, that Griezmann informed Atletico that he will deposit his €120m release clause in July.

Barcelona have always been linked with a move for Griezmann and the 28-year-old has a release clause in his contract that the La Liga champions are reportedly ready to trigger.
