The French forward has long been linked with a move away from the Wanda Metropolitano.

Manchester United were interested in his services in the summer.

Eventually, a move did not materialise as Atletico were hit with a transfer ban.

United instead signed Romelu Lukaku and Griezmann penned a new deal with the Spanish club.

It ties him to the club until 2022 but uncertainty around his future has grown.

Throughout the season, a mega-money move to La Liga rivals Barcelona had been touted.

Atletico even made a complaint to FIFA over the Catalan club’s pursuit of the 26-year-old.

But the France international’s latest actions will spark rumours that he has had enough and will leave the Rojiblancos.
