The French world cup winner had earlier been thought to have agreed on a move to the Nou Camp but later changed his mind before the world cup.
Atletico are set to take on high flying Alaves in La Liga away and speaking in the pre-match conference about Griezmann future said
” Honestly, the rumours surrounding around Griezmann do not interest me, ” said the Argentinian. I can not imagine it because it is simply under contract with the club. He is one of the captains of our team. He has given everything to Atlético de Madrid since his arrival and I am sure he will make a great performance on Saturday. That’s all I can say about Griezmann. “
