Atlético Madrid CEO Confirms Antoine Griezmann Will Move To Barcelona

Atlético Madrid CEO Confirms Antoine Griezmann Will Move To Barcelona

Atlético Madrid CEO Miguel Ángel Gil Marín has confirmed that Antoine Griezmann will sign for Barcelona this summer.

The 28-year-old French forward has been linked with the likes of Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United, but it looks like he is only heading in one direction: the Camp Nou.

"I am very clear about where he is going to play -- it is known since March -- at Barcelona," he told Radioestadio (via Sport).

The Atlético superstar announced that he would leave his side at the end of the season and the La Liga champions have been the favourites to land him this summer.

But Griezmann did suggest that he was unsure about his future while he was on international duty with France.

"I do not know when my future will be resolved," he said after France's 2-0 win against Bolivia earlier this month.

"It is a good question, but everything will come in its time.

"It is always a wonderful thing to play for the national team, we all enjoy it, not everyone can live this experience and we are proud to represent France."
