Antoine Griezmann has signed a contract extension with Atletico Madrid. The Frenchman signed a contract that’ll keep him at the club till 2021.
The France international has been linked with a move away from Spain, after impressing at Atletico last season. The forward scored 32 goals for the capital club in all competitions.
But the 25-year-old has now responded to such speculations by inking a five-year deal with the Colcheneros.
A delighted Griezmann told Atletico’s official website: “I’m very satisfied, very happy to keep belonging to this family and this project.
“I want to improve every year, and the club, the coaches and my teammates can help me to reach this goal.”
Griezmann, 25, stressed the importance of Atletico keeping their structure in place, including coach Diego Simeone – who had been contemplating his future after the club’s Champions League final defeat against Real Madrid.
“It’s essential to continue keeping the important players, with the coach,” he added. “We’re lucky to be in this club that wants to improve and reach the top and help us keep growing.”
