Athletico Madrid remain confident of Griezmann staying

As rumours have been spreading regarding Antoine Griezmann's future, Atletico Madrid remain confident that the player will continue to don a Rojiblanco shirt next season.

The club's assurance is based both on the player's contract that runs until 2022 and the fact that he has never asked to depart Estadio Wanda Metropolitano.

Atleti are aware that offers will arrive in the upcoming transfer window, but are unwilling to negotiate the player's transfer and are eager to refer anyone interested to the forward's buy-out clause which is set at 100 million euros.

For the following season the Frenchman's salary will be increased to 14m euros per year, which will equal the club's top earner, coach Diego Simeone.

A few days ago, Griezmann indicated that he would like to make the final decision on his future before the upcoming World Cup.

Simeone also made clear his intention to do everything possible to retain the player who has scored the most goals throughout his boss' tenure.

Finally, several Atletico Madrid players have been vocal in urging the 27-year-old to stay in the group, highlighting the cohesion of the team's dressing room.
