Atletico Madrid say they are “fed up with
Barcelona’s attitude” as the Catalan giants
continue to openly court Antoine Griezmann.
Having identified the France international striker
as a top target, those at Camp Nou have set
about trying to put a big-money deal in place.
Atletico’s patience has now been pushed past
breaking point, with CEO Miguel Angel Gil
Martin releasing a statement on the club’s
official website which read: “We’re fed up with
“That a president, player and a board member
speak the way they’ve done about the future of
a player with an existing contract and just a
few days before disputing a European final, is
an absolute lack of respect towards Atlético
Madrid and its fans.
“Atlético de Madrid’s stance is very clear and
has been made public on numerous occasions.
Not once have we negotiated for Griezmann nor
do we have any intention to do so. “A few
months ago, I personally expressed to
Barcelona’s president that our player isn’t for
sale nor are we going to sell him.”
