There is a new twist regarding the transfer stories linking French and Athletico Madrid’s forward Antione Griezmann to F.C Barcelona. Earlier in this year, Barcelona’s president confirmed Barcelona has been in contact with Griezmann and a deal could be possible. Barcelona are ready to pay a massive fee of £100m to secure his signature.However, there has been reports that Griezmann is ready to reject F.C Barcrlona to sign a contract extension with Athletico Madrid according to COPE radio. The team from the Spanish Capital is ready to offer him a new contract which he would be earning about £385,000 per week joining the list of some of the top paid players in the Spanish La Liga.
The 27 years old forward has been on the wish list of Barcelona since the winter transfer window and would have to wait for Griezmann to take a decision on his future.
