Atletico Madrid deals smartly so far with Barcelona in the Griezmann deal!

Atletico Madrid is laying out a scheme for French player Antoine Griezmann, loaned from Barcelona, ​​to escape from being subject to the purchase option agreed upon between the two parties.

Atletico Madrid included Antoine Griezmann on loan in the last summer transfer window from Barcelona, ​​with an obligatory purchase clause for 40 million euros.

The French player has participated in all Atletico Madrid matches in the league so far as a substitute in the second half, while the option to buy from Barcelona depends on matches in which he plays 30 minutes or more, and does not include lost time.

Atletico Madrid’s plan to escape Barcelona’s grip

Griezmann played at least 45 minutes in 81% of the 2021-2022 matches, and if this season is completed he will be an Atleti player from 2023-2024, but at Vicente Calderon they  don’t want to pay and want to reduce that amount

According to the Spanish newspaper, Mundo Deportivo, if Griezmann played 30 minutes or more in more than 50% of the matches during his loan period, the compulsory purchase clause will be activated, according to which Barcelona gets 40 million euros.

The report indicated that Barcelona are hoping that this maneuver by Atletico Madrid will fail, but they are not worried at the moment despite their conviction that Diego Simeone, coach of Roji Blancos has been ordered not to start with the French player, but the schedule is against him and Atletico will have to change his plans.

The Spanish report stressed that if Griezmann played in twenty matches for more than forty-five minutes, the clause would be activated.

“As long as Griezmann manages to respond as he does, his presence on the field is very important and I understand that I have to put him at a time that suits the team better,” Atletico coach Simeone said in statements after the Valencia match.

According to the Mundo Deportivo report, the Barcelona board of directors and the sports administration do not believe that it is possible for Griezmann to return in the future due to the sporting conditions, as well as the salary bill and the registration issue.

It is noteworthy that the French international led the Atletico Madrid battalion to victory over Valencia in the third week of the Spanish League, with a goal without a response, which he scored himself at the 66th minute of the match, that is, after participating in the meeting only two minutes.
