Antoine Griezmann commits to Atletico Madrid amid transfer speculation

Antoine Griezmann, the talismanic forward for Atletico Madrid, has shed light on the persistent transfer speculations that surrounded him during the summer transfer window.

The 32-year-old, who’s currently in his third stint with the La Liga club, has unequivocally expressed his commitment to the Red and Whites.

Griezmann, who rejoined Atletico from Barcelona last year, showcased his prowess in the previous season, netting 16 goals and delivering 19 assists in 48 appearances.

This season, he’s already marked his territory with a goal in Atletico’s impressive 7-0 victory over Rayo Vallecano.

With 158 goals under his belt for Atletico, Griezmann is inching closer to Luis Aragones’ all-time scoring record, just 15 goals away. Despite interest from Al-Nassr, a Saudi Arabian club, Griezmann made it clear that he never contemplated leaving the Wanda Metropolitano.

“There were calls and contacts, but I was focused on my club,” Griezmann emphasized as quoted by GFFN, during his international duty with France. “I’m not moving; I’m staying here. I’m going to try and break the record. It isn’t the moment to leave.”

As he prepares for France’s Euro 2024 qualifier against the Republic of Ireland and a friendly with Germany, Griezmann’s commitment to Atletico remains unwavering, much to the delight of fans.
