Griezmann Extends Atletico Contract till 2022
Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann has extended his contract by a year, with his new deal expiring in 2022.
The 26-year-old France forward had been heavily linked with Manchester United, and said last month there was a “6/10” chance he could move to Old Trafford this summer.
But he agreed to stay at Atletico after the club had a transfer ban upheld.
Griezmann, capped 41 times, scored 26 goals in 2016-17 as Atletico finished third in La Liga behind Real Madrid and Barcelona.
He was named the third best player in the world, behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, at the Ballon d’Or ceremony in January.
