Antoine Griezmann to leave Atletico Madrid”

"@AntoGriezmann He has informed the club that he will not continue as rojiblanco next season", a tweet read.

Griezmann now has a £108million (€125million) release clause, a fee which was decided after he penned a new five-year deal last summer.

And in order to facilitate his departure from the club, the Frenchman will himself pay the club their asking price.

"Thank you very much for everything".

Griezmann was closely linked with a move to Manchester United earlier in the season, but it now seems most likely he will remain in La Liga at Barcelona. "New meeting on next days".

Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann announced on Tuesday through the team's social media account that he is leaving the club this summer during the transfer window.

"It's been an incredible five years here; thanks for everything, from the bottom of my heart", he said.

"I wanted to tell the fans who have always given me a lot of love that I have taken the decision to leave, to see other things, to have other challenges", the 28-year-old added, in a video posted on Twitter. "I gave everything I could on the pitch, and tried to give all the fans some happiness at Wanda Metropolitano or the unbelievable support away from home". I just put the camera there to see how hard it is.
