GRIEZMANN TO SIGN WITH BARCA, SAYS ATLETI CEO


Atletico Madrid CEO Miguel Angel Gil Marin says Antoine Griezmann will be playing for Barcelona next season, confirming what sources told ESPN FC in May.
Griezmann, 28, communicated to Atletico that he would leave the club this summerin the final week of the La Liga season. At the time, sources at Barcelona told ESPN FC that the Spanish champions were hopeful of signing the forward.
The France international has not yet revealed what his next move will be, despite making his Atletico departure public, but Gil Marin has no doubts about where his future lies.
"I've been certain where Griezmann will play next season since March," Gil Marin told Movistar on Wednesday. "He will play for Barcelona."
Griezmann has offered conflicting versions of his current situation over the past few days. He followed up a comment saying he knows where he will be playing next season by backtracking and saying nothing has been confirmed yet.
"I want my future to be decided more than anyone, but let's be patient," Griezmann said on Tuesday. "Maybe in two weeks we'll know something."
Barca are keen to sign Griezmann despite the manner in which he turned them down last summer. His decision to star in a documentary in which he snubbed their offer in favour of remaining with Atleti irked some people at the Catalan club, but president Josep Maria Bartomeu has remained keen on the attacker.
Bartomeu told ESPN FC that the documentary, titled "The Decision", was "water under the bridge" in an exclusive interview in April.
However, Barcelona need to balance their books before committing to more signings, with the club targeting at least €60 million in sales before the end of June, which is when the financial year ends.
