Should Antoine Griezmann decide to depart Barcelona this summer, his only destination is Atletico Madrid, as per reports from Diario AS.

Antoine Griezmann

would only join

Atletico Madrid

if he were to leave

Barcelona

as he doesn’t see

Manchester City

and

Tottenham

’s offers as realistic.

Joan Laporta

and

Mateu Alemany

have revealed that they plan to cash in on the France international due to financial reasons.

The Frenchman is a high-value saleable asset, which is a rare thing at the Blaugrana now.

Barca are planning to sell him for decent money to reduce their wage bill, which allows them to register their new signings and offer

Lionel Messi

a new contract, who is enjoying his holiday in Miami now.

The 30-year-old was on the verge of joining Atletico Madrid in a swap deal that involved Saul, but it collapsed. Playing under Diego Simeone is a pleasing idea to Griezmann, who said that only for him he is willing to lower his wage requests.

Manchester City are prioritizing Harry Kane and Jack Grealish’s signatures, whereas Spurs don’t have a chance of landing Griezmann.
