French champions PSG will try to sign Antoine Griezmann again despite the striker signing a new deal at Atletico Madrid until 2021, according to his agent.
Reports in the French press suggests the Ligue 1 winners attempted to sign the 25-year-old over summer but a move broke down due to his buy-out clause at the time – a reported €80m, but the player’s agent Eric Olhat believes they will make another move in the future.
“I’m not worried about it. If [L’Équipe’s] information is correct, there will be other clubs who will come calling, there’s no problem there,” Olhats told Radio MonteCarlo, adding that he had met with Olivier Letang, PSG’s sporting director.
“And if PSG change their mind they’ll be back as well because there were talks and interest. The conversations were cordial, but Antoine chose to stay at Atlético.
“That’s why I find it surprising that this has all been published now.”
The French striker has netted 63 goals in 115 appearances for Atletico since his 2014 move from Real Sociedad.
