Griezmann’s agent is meeting with English clubs but Atletico Madrid leads the race.

Antoine Griezmann’s

representative has talked about the France international’s future with some Premier League clubs, although it seems like the player’s former club

Atletico Madrid

is the most probable option for him as he gets closer to the end of his spell at Camp Nou.

Barcelona

and Atletico Madrid are already negotiating over the France international’s transfer to his former club in exchange for Atletico’s midfielder Saul Niguez who has been on Atletico’s transfer list.

Barcelona is determined to sell the World Cup winner as they need to get his wages off the book to be able to sign a new contract with Lionel Messi, whose future at the club has been the main subject of the fans’ conversations, but the club would prefer Griezmann to join a team from another league instead of joining La Liga’s reigning champions who are going to do everything to defend their title.

The reports suggest that Chelsea, Manchester City, and Liverpool have been invited to evaluate the signing of the 30-year-old star on a low fee because Barcelona wants to get rid of his wages.

Although Barcelona doesn’t like to sell the player to Atletico Madrid, they wouldn’t have any other choices if no Premier League side shows interest in signing him.
