He confirmed in a statement that the club’s management is “very close” to extending his contract. In his words: “I’m fine at Atletico. I’m close to renewing my contract. We’re on the right path.”

The French footballer scored his 32nd goal of the season in Saturday’s 2-0 win against Celta Vigo.

Griezmann is part of the reasons why Atletico Madrid finished third in La Liga ranks for 2015/2016 season so it would be a compliment to see his value increase at the club.

As a matter of fact, the Spanish club is keen on rewarding the Frenchman with improved terms to keep his services. The player’s contract expires in 2020.

“[The CL final] will be a great match. It’ll be my first Champions League final and I hope to win it.

“I hope to lift the trophy and have a good game.”

  1. He will surely stay because that’s where he rightly belongs. Athleti made him what he is. Going to any other club will be for money and he may not have the chance to develop as he did in Spain.

  2. The Frenchman is staying for good. There’s no better place for him to move unless he wishes to end his career. He’s doing well at Atletico.

  3. Thanks for writing about my favorite footballer. Griezmann should have won the Worlds Best Player last year. Anyway, I have shared your website in my social networks!
