Cerezo: Griezmann must decide

Enrique Cerezo has admitted that striker Antoine Griezmann must make up his mind about a move to Barcelona.

However, the Atletico Madrid President was at pains to point out that his club will do all in their power to keep him at the Wanda Metropolitano this summer.

“He has to decide his own future but at the moment he is an Atletico player…full stop,” Cerezo told El Golazo de Gol.

“I see Griezmann well, both on and off the field. Our idea is for him to continue with us. He is a great player who alongside Messi and Cristiano forms the most important trio in world football.

“We are proud to have him and will do all we can – not only for Griezmann, also Oblak, everyone…”

Cerezo was asked about the upcoming Europa League final against Marseille.

“Atletico are now without doubt a big club in Europe. We are No 2 in the rankings, ahead of Barcelona, Manchester, Liverpool, Bayern…Second!

“We have received lots of congratulations for getting to the final and they have been warmly received. Have we had congratulations from other Presidents? Yes, from everyone, Bartomeu, Florentino….”
