Antoine Griezmann’s agent refuses to rule out Atletico Madrid exit

The agent of Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann, Eric Olhats, has claimed that the forward could leave the Spanish club this summer.

Griezmann has scored 32 goals in 53 appearances for Atletico this season and his form is said to have attracted interest from the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United.

Atletico have offered the Frenchman a new contract to stay at the Vicente Calderon but Olhats insisted that Griezmann’s future is far from certain.

“Contrary to certain claims announcing that Antoine at Atletico next season will be the case without fail, nothing has been decided or endorsed,” he said.

“We are currently listening to different clubs who also offer real interest and attraction.”

Griezmann is a world-class player who would inject a huge amount of quality into any side in the world.

United’s problems up top have been well documented this term and it’s safe to say that their forward line would receive a whole new dimension if Griezmann was to come in.

But agents have often talked up other interest from other clubs in order to get better deals for their clients at their current side. Dani Alves and Thomas Muller, too, have reportedly been on United’s radar in recent years only for them to commit their long-term futures to Barcelona and Bayern Munich, respectively.
