Transfers: Griezmann is in turmoil, he flies to his rescue
Posted on September 17, 2022 at 4:30 p.m. by Thomas Bourseau
Confined to a role of luxury joker since the start of the season due to the imbroglio between FC Barcelona and Atletico de Madrid on the conditions of the €40m purchase option included in his loan, Antoine Griezmann intends to reverse the trend and can count on the support of his teammate Jan Oblak.
Anthony Griezmann isn’t having an easy start to the season at the Wanda Metropolitano. Due to a disagreement on the terms of the activation of the €40 million call option agreed in August 2021 between the heart rate Barcelona and theAtlético de Madrid for the loan of the Frenchman, Griezmann is only partially used by Diego Simone since the start of the season.
“The best place for me, for my family, where I am happiest”
The objective of theAtlético de Madrid is not to play Anthony Griezmann more than thirty minutes at each exit of the Colchoneros so that they do not find themselves obliged to exercise the call option in question. A difficult situation for the world champion who confessed to Prime Video Sports yet to be fully happy at theAtlético de Madrid. “You spin the globe and you stop it right here, it’s the best place for me, for my family, where I’m happiest. I’m proud to be part of this club.”

“I’m making people fall in love with me again”
In comments reported by The AthleticAntoine Griezmann notably expressed substantive work since his return to theAtlético de Madrid to win back the hearts of fans and public opinion in Madrid after leaving for the heart rate Barcelona in 2019 just a year after extending his contract. “I understand that some people are still not happy with me being here, and I’m trying to work 10,000% to turn that around. I’m making people fall in love with me again.”
“He is doing everything he can to help the team and the club”
And to finish, Jan Oblak has obviously not escaped the delicate sporting situation in which Antoine Griezmann finds himself, the highest salary of theAtlético de Madrid with its annual 10M€ in the context of an interview with The Athletic. “Antoine understands the values of Atletico, that’s for sure. He was gone for two years, but when he came back he was very happy to be back with us. He is doing everything he can to help the team and the club get the results we want”.
