Antoine Griezmann To Quit Atletico Madrid When Diego Simeone Leaves 

share on:

​Antoine Griezmann admits his future at Atletico Madrid would only be brought into question if Diego Simeone left. 
The Frenchman signed a new contract with the La Liga side in the summer, keeping him at the club until 2021. 

He was continually linked with a move away from Atletico in the Spanish and British press, but while on international duty with France, the 25-year-old says he is happy in Spain under the current circumstance
“The only doubt would be if Simeone leaves for PSG or wherever,” Griezmann told French TV programme Telefoot. “I called him before extending my contract and he confirmed to me that he was staying. I can learn a lot from him.

“PSG are not my goal at the moment. I’m happy in Spain. I’m always proud to be popular with the fans. I try to smile and do my best. If they like it, it’s even better.”

Simeone signed a new contract at Atletico last March until 2020, but his future has also been continually questioned.

Griezmann scored 32 goals for Atletico last season, and was top scorer at Euro 2016.
