Antoine Griezmann ‘signs new five-year Atletico Madrid deal’

Antoine Griezmann has committed his future to Atletico Madrid by signing a new five-year deal with the club, according to reports.

The 25-year-old striker has been linked with a move to the Premier League this summer, with the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea rumoured to be interested in bringing him to England.

However, L’Equipe claim that the France international has put pen to paper on a new long-term deal at the Vicente Calderon, bringing an end to the transfer speculation.

Griezmann, who was rumoured to have an €80m (£62.4m) release clause in his old contract, enjoyed the best season of his career last term, scoring 22 goals in 36 league starts.

He found the back of the net 32 times in all competitions, helping La Rojiblancos to a second Champions League final in the last three years.

Griezmann is also part of the France squad for Euro 2016 this summer and is expected to start for the hosts in the opening match against Romania on Friday.
