ANTOINE GRIEZMANN told Diego Simeone back in December that he would be joining Barcelona at the end of the season, according to reports in Spain.

However, despite signing a new contract, he looks almost certain to leave this time around, with Barcelona rumoured as the frontrunners for his signature.

And AS are now reporting Griezmann informed Simeone last December of his intention to end his time at club and join Barcelona.

The report adds that the Atletico boss told him he could count on his full support, as well as that of the rest of the team.

And the pair agreed they would ensure the Rojiblancos had the best possible campaign — and his form since the turn of the year has been sensational.
