Cadena SER: Barcelona ready to pay Atletico midfielder Rodri's clause

Antoine Griezmann to leave Atletico Madrid

Griezmann has informed Atletico Madrid that he intends to leave this summer after five seasons with the club.

Despite recently signing a contract extension, the Frenchman confirmed his decision in a video released on Twitter on Tuesday evening.

Griezmann was a World Cup champion with France a year ago, when he also finished third in the Ballon d'Or vote for world's best player, behind Luka Modric and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The 28-year-old French World Cup victor spurned a move to Camp Nou 11 months ago, but a blockbuster transfer to Ernesto Valverde's side appears back on.

However, following his change of heart, reports have suggested Premier League champions City were considering challenging any renewed interest from Barca by activating the forward's release clause, reportedly set at €120million. "I want to thank you for all the support you have given me in these five years, where I won my first trophies".

At the time he said: "I can tell from a reliable source, Antoine Griezmann will go to FC Barcelona next summer".

You can buy a 1TB microSD card now
SanDisk's offering is the faster of the two and it's finally available to order over on Amazon for a rather hefty £453.99. This price seems high, but it makes flawless sense when you consider that a 512GB card is in the region of $200.

US Supreme Court allows suit against Apple to proceed
This issue originally started in 2011 when some iPhone users claimed that App Store prices would be lower in an open market. The dispute hinged in part on how the justices would apply a decision the court made in 1977 to the claims against Apple.

Griezmann, five years younger, should be entering his prime, and departs with only one Europa League and a Super Cup.

As rumblings surfaced that City will likely be banned from Europe's elite club competition for one year, the club responded in a statement saying they are "disappointed, but regrettably not surprised, by the sudden announcement of the referral".

The former Real Madrid striker has scored six times in 15 La Liga appearances since rejoining his boyhood club on an 18-month loan.

Given Luis Suarez's age and the poor form shown by Philippe Coutinho, Griezmann would be a fantastic signing on paper.

"Players are always looking for important teams, like Lucas Hernandez with Bayern Munich, Barcelona. historically there are better clubs and that growth is sought".

"You talk about how good Griezmann would be linking up with Messi and Barcelona, what about with Liverpool's front three?"
