Griezmann will leave Atletico: Simeone


Mourinho was asked directly about Atletico Madrid attacker Antoine Griezmann.

"My players, I love them a lot".

Simeone said he would not deny the chance to leave to any of his players if they wanted to continue their growth somewhere else. "I know that he needs to grow".

Speculation regarding a potential move away from Diego Simeone's side have continued since October, when Mundo Deportivo reported that Barcelona were ready to battle United for his services.

The forward will be aware of just how important Simeone has been in his development since arriving in the Spanish capital. Previously, he played for Real Sociedad from 2009-14. Now he's a focal point going forward who can hurt opposition players in many different ways. But his performances and productivity in the final third have been crucial in pushes for La Liga and UEFA Champions League titles in recent years.

With the discovery of Kepler-90i, the solar system is now tied with the Kepler-90 star system with the most number of planets . Astronomers had never before observed an eight-planet network beside the solar system that includes Earth, researchers said.

Simeone feels Griezmann has done all he could have for the club and now it is up to the club to honour the player's wish of playing for another club.

Atletico manager Diego Simone now admits he will not stop any player from leaving the club if they were offered a once-in-a-lifetime move.

The Catalan giants are also considering another Dutchman, Stefan de Vrij of Lazio, as they seek to bolster the ranks at Camp Nou.

However, Cerezo has now refused to confirm the feelings of Atletico officials regarding Griezmann's potential move to Barcelona.
