I have taken the decision to leave Atletico - Griezmann

Apo CaballeroMARCA

Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann announced on Tuesday through the team's social media account that he is leaving the club this summer during the transfer window.

Since turning down Barcelona before the 2018 World Cup, Griezmann has had a typically strong year - though his goal numbers are lower than usual.

It seems the payment of the contractual buyout clause of €200m (dropping to €120m on 1 July) is now all that stands between Barcelona sealing the deal, with an official announcement expected soon.

Griezmann said in a video posted on the club's Twitter account: "It has been five incredible years, thank you very much for everything, I carry you in my heart".

ESPN's Moises Llorens reported in March that the 28-year-old turned down the chance to join Barcelona last summer but had grown increasingly frustrated at Atletico this season.

This latest twist in the player's future comes just days after Atletico boss Diego Simeone insisted his key man was set to stay.

Marca claims 2018 World Cup victor told the club that although he is grateful for the affection he has received since arriving from Real Sociedad four years ago, it is time for him to take on a new challenge elsewhere. It's been a very important stage.

"I have enjoyed a lot, I have left everything in the field, I have tried to behave well, I have tried to give joy to the people who have come to the Metropolitano and also away from home, and I only have gratitude for all of you".
