Griezmann pens new deal with Atletico

Antoine Griezmann signs Atletico Madrid extension until 2023

Antoine Griezmann signs Atletico Madrid extension until 2023

Antoine Griezmann's decision to stay at Atletico Madrid will not affect Manchester United's transfer plans, according to a report in England.

Vice-president Jordi Mestre says the club will speak to Gerard Pique privately about the matter.

Atletico Madrid have agreed a deal to sign versatile midfielder Thomas Lemar from Monaco after tying forward Antoine Griezmann and defender Lucas Hernandez to new long-term contracts. "But we feel bad for the supporters who felt disappointed with the way it happened and the way the final resolution came out".

Mestre went on to say that Pique being involved in the video production caused "surprise and uneasiness".

However, with Pique set to be captain following Andres Iniesta's departure, the Griezmann incident raises big questions about whether he is fit to wear the armband.

Lucas said of his France teammate: "I am very happy that he stays with us". He confirmed the defender and his centre-back partner will be spoken to by the club.

Griezmann, currently with the France squad at the 2018 World Cup, has now demonstrated his commitment to Atletico by adding another year to his contract after meeting with the club's chief executive, Miguel Angel Gil Marin, in Russian Federation. Since then, the Spaniard has been forced to defend himself, claiming he had no involvement in Griezmann's decision other than to suggest it be filmed.

"As a club, we respect Griezmann's decision to renew with Atletico as we respect any player's right to decide their future", he said.
