Report: Griezmann set to leave Barcelona for Atletico Madrid return

[ad_1]

Antoine Griezmann is set to leave Barcelona and return to his former club, Atletico Madrid, in a loan deal worth €10 million with a buy option for €40 million, according to ESPN.

The star striker will reportedly sign a two-year contract with an optional third year with Atletico, and has been told the club will make the move permanent next summer.

Griezmann parted ways with Madrid to join Barcelona in 2019 via a massive €120-million deal, but failed to live up to lofty expectations at Camp Nou, scoring 22 goals over his two seasons there.

With the French international’s departure, Barcelona is now without both him and franchise icon Lionel Messi, who left the club to join Paris St. Germain earlier this month.

The club intends to bring in Sevilla striker Luuk de Jong on loan to replace its departed stars, according to ESPN.
