Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann has confirmed that he will leave the club at the end of this season. Rumours are that the Frenchman is heading towards Barcelona in the upcoming transfer window.

Sportskeeda reported that Griezmann signed for Atletico Madrid in 2014, and since then he has been a vital player for the team. He has scored 133 times in 256 appearances for Diego Simeone’s side. Griezmann has also won the UEFA Europa League with Atletico in the 2017-18 season.

Griezmann has shown his quality with the national side as well. His four goals and two assists in 2018 World Cup saw him winning the Bronze Ball. He was the tournament’s third best player behind Luka Modric and Eden Hazard. He was also successful in acquiring the Silver Boot as he was the second-highest top scorer behind Harry Kane.

Griezmann has scored 19 goals and has provided 11 assists this season across all competitions. He is the top scorer for Atletico Madrid in La Liga with 15 goals this season. Moreover, he has also been the club’s top scorer in each of the five seasons he has spent there.

The 28-year-old had signed a five-year contract with Atletico last summer but has revealed that he is planning to leave the club this summer.

Twitter erupted on the decision and many Barcelona fans rejoiced as they are confident that he will move to  Barcelona rather than going to Real Madrid.
