Griezmann will leave Atletico Madrid at the end of the season

Antoine Griezmann has told Atletico Madrid he will not return to the club next season.

Even after signing a new five-year contract, the forward has now informed the club that he will be joining Barcelona after the end of the season.

That decision was revealed in a lengthy television special and Griezmann appeared in a video posted to the Rojiblancos' social media accounts to announce his exit.

"After speaking with [coach Diego Simeone], [CEO Miguel] Angel Gil Marin and with people in the club's hierarchy, I wanted to speak with you, the fans", Griezmann said.

"It's been an incredible five years", Griezmann said. "You, the supporters, will always be in my heart". It's been very hard for me to take this path, but I feel that it's what I need. On this note, it should be mentioned that a minimum fee release clause reported to be £108million are attached to the hefty price tag Antoine Griezmann will come with.

He has played 256 games and he has scored 133 goals. There has been speculation about his move to the Catalan club during the most recent transfer windows.

He has won the Europa League, the Spanish Super Cup and the UEFA Super Cup during his time at Atletico and has been the team's top scorer in each of the last five seasons. He was key in the second Champions League final which Cholo's Atletico reached, the one in 2016 at the San Siro.

From July 1, Griezmann's contract sees a £104m release clause and that would represent an affordable fee for Barcelona to acquire the services of Griezmann. "Hopefully the day he leaves us will be a goodbye like Godin's".
