Even though he hasn’t had a good outing, Diego Simeone still believes in his abilities and feels he will be good for the team next season.
The terms of the deal also included a mandatory permanent transfer clause of €40 million which will only take effect in 2023. The only condition that must be met is that he must pay 50% of the games in the running games as well as in the 2022-23 football season.
Griezmann has already appeared in over 60% of Atletico’s matches which includes 24 La Liga matches and nine UEFA Champions League matches; The player made only eight hits and five assists.
Before moving to Barcelona, the Frenchman scored 133 goals for Atletico in just over 250 matches in all competitions. He won the European League title once, Supercopa de Espana, and also reached the UEFA Champions League Final where his team lost to arch-rivals Real Madrid.
