Antoine Griezmann is not a goner. It was reported that he had signed a pre-contract agreement with Barcelona and would be leaving Atlético Madrid in the summer. After years of close calls, it was said that the attacker’s time under Diego Simeone was finished. But that might not be the case as Atlético close in on a Europa League final.

He offered an update after the Arsenal game when he scored the goal that swung the tie back in his side’s favour.

He says, “We are all important, we’re a team. I am happy and it shows on the field. work, I fight and try to score goals. I am happy and that’s what’s most important. I don’t know what will happen next year. We are talking with the club to see what can be done.”

Either Griezmann is considering his future at rojiblancos or he has finally learned how to deal with answers when it comes to transfer speculation.
