Antoine Griezmann: Striker to leave Atletico Madrid at end of season

However, a little less than a year after committing his future to Diego Simeone's side, he's made a decision to leave the club.

Atletico announced Griezmann's departure on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon.

Internationally, Griezmann has been capped 69 times by Les Bleus.

"Thank you very much for everything".

The Catalans were in hot pursuit of Griezmann previous year, but the France star opted to sign a new contract with Atletico through 2023, announcing his intention in a televised special called "La Decision".

He said: "Barcelona are now ready to pay €125M release clause for Antoine Griezmann".

The Australian whistleblower originally faced four sex-related charges in Sweden after an August 2010 visit to the country. Following the announcement, WikiLeaks said the investigation would give Assange a chance to clear his name .

"It's been an incredible five years", Griezmann said. "I keep you in my heart".

Don't count out the interest of teams like Manchester United, in need of a summer makeover, and Paris Saint-Germain if Neymar happens to leave, though that feels unlikely.

The Frenchman has scored 133 goals in 256 appearances for Atletico since joining from fellow Spanish outfit Real Sociedad in 2014.

"In our careers, we have to take decisions that we sometimes regret", Umtiti told French TV programme Telefoot. "I gave everything I could on the pitch, and tried to give all the fans some happiness at Wanda Metropolitano or the fantastic support away from home".

A year ago, the players were excited about him moving to the club, but the decision to turn them down in the manner that Griezmann chose put some noses out of joint and the squad aren't quite as enthused as they once were.
