CAIRO – 15 May 2019: Atletico Madrid’s French winger, Antoine Griezmann, announced that this season will be his last season with the Spanish club, Atletico Madrid.
Griezmann, who spent five years inside the club, revealed that searching for new challenges is the main reason behind his decision.
“It has been five incredible years, thank you very much for everything, I will carry you in my heart, I wanted to tell you that I have made the decision to leave, to face new things, new challenges. Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart and see you later." Griezmann said in a video published via Atletico's Twitter account.
The French winger, who led his nation to win the World Cup last summer, is considered one of the top strikers in the world and he has been linked with a move outside Atletico Madrid.
Griezmann did not announce his future destination but many reports said that the French player will represent Barcelona next year.
