Atletico are adamant that they won’t negotiate with Barca over Griezmann

Atletico Madrid are adamant that they won’t negotiate with Barcelona over the transfer of Antoine Griezmann this summer.

Griezmann will only be allowed to leave the Wanda Metropolitano should the Catalans meet his release clause, otherwise he’ll be staying on with the Rojiblancos.

With Atletico set to depart for their pre-season plans on Sunday, the forward has been told that his presence is expected at the Cerro de Majadahonda, where they’ll leave at 8.30pm CET to travel to Los Angeles de San Rafael.

In the event that the Frenchman doesn’t appear, the club will take disciplinary action against him, with the 28-year-old still under contract at Los Rojiblancos and earning a salary of over 20 million euros per year.
