The Red Devils have made Antoine Griezmann as their one of the priority signings for next season who is valued at £65 million. The Atletico Madrid forward is in great form ever since he joined the Vincente de Calderon, playing a vital part in Atletico’s fight against league giants Real Madrid and Barcelona. Griezmann has scored 30 goals and made 6 assists for Diego Simeone’s men this season in all competitions.
Though Atletico Madrid have no intentions of selling their best forward since they have no financial hurdles. The Roji Blancos are not a feeder club anymore as they have been competing for both League and European glories against the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona who are arguably the world’s top two clubs at the moment. Diego Simeone has forged a team who can play hearts out and can beat an opponent wit their sheer pressing game. The unique style Simeone follows proved impossible to crack in the recent months.
Atletico defeated Bayern Munich in the first leg of Champions League semifinal by 1-0 and visit the Allianz Arena to play the second leg with a goal advantage. Griezmann is expected to lead the Atletico front line along with experienced Fernando Torres as Atletico enter the tie as favorites to cruise through to the finals to be held in Milan.
Antoine Griezmann has made it very clear that he has no intentions of leaving the Spanish giants and also the player’s attachment with coach Diego Simeone is strong. Many clubs who tried to lure Diego Simeone away from Atletico Madrid failed in their attempt and Griezmann may also return the same to his chasers. The Atletico Madrid side has a bonding beyond the professional level.
But nothing is permanent, especially in FOOTBALL !! EPL is always a magnet which attracts top talents easily than any other leagues because of the richness and commercial benefits of the league. Former Atletico Madrid players, Fernando Torres, Sergio Aguero, Diego Costa have all enjoyed a great spell with English teams and Griezmann may also follow the suit, but only if the chasing club offers a breathtaking deal.
