Antoine Griezmann Signs New Atletico Madrid Deal

Antoine Griezmann Signs New Atletico Madrid Deal

The 22-year-old forward is now with the French national team in Russian Federation for this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

Atletico sent officials to the France squad at the World Cup in Russian Federation to get Griezmann, Lemar and defender Lucas Hernandez, to sign deals.

France global Antoine Griezmann has extended his stay at Atletico Madrid, snubbing interest from FC Barcelona despite the likes of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez urging him to sign for the Catalan club.

"I knew that he identified very much with the fans, with the people, with us".

Griezmann netted 29 goals in 49 appearances in all competitions for Atletico during the 2017/18 season. "I love the project that we are building with such great players".

One of the big influences the prominent USA corporate giants could have in the health care market is pricing leverage. Employer-sponsored insurance covers about 157 million people, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.

"We respect Griezmann's decision to sign a new contract with Atletico as we respect any player's decision about their future".

On June 12, Atletico Madrid announced a preliminary deal had been agreed with Monaco on the transfer of Lemar.

Atletico had sent officials to the France squad at the World Cup in Russian Federation to get these deals completed, and they are going to return to Spain with a lot of satisfaction.

However, the 22-year-old looks set to join the Europa League winners in a deal reportedly worth £62.2million, pending a medical and finalising a formal agreement with Monaco. But the France striker, who scored for his country in their World Cup opener against Australia on the weekend, revealed that he would be staying put at the Wanda Metropolitano during an interview last week. France's next match is against Peru on Thursday.
