Atletico Madrid expect Antoine Griezmann to stay at the club next season, sources have told ESPN, despite the financial squeeze which has seen them struggling to meet their LaLiga-imposed salary cap.

Reports in Spain had suggested Atletico would look to move on Griezmann this summer -- he's on a two-year loan from Barcelona which will become an obligatory purchase if he plays a set number of games next year -- to ease the pressure on their wage bill.

High earners Alvaro Morata and Saul Niguez are both due to return for preseason training next month with their loan spells ending at Juventus and Chelsea respectively, while the lack of salary cap space means the club haven't yet been able to make official the free transfer arrival of Axel Witsel.

Multiple sources told ESPN that while Atletico were looking at ways of trimming the squad to resolve the situation, Griezmann would not be leaving this summer.
