MADRID: Champions League star Antoine Griezmann has said he is “close” to extending his contract with Atletico de Madrid.
Griezmann scored his 32nd goal of the season in Saturday’s 2-0 win against Celta Vigo as Atletico finished third in La Liga. The French forward has also been instrumental in the club reaching the Champions League final, where they will face neighbours Real Madrid on May 28.
With many of Europe’s leading outfits expressing an interest in signing Griezmann, Atletico are keen to tie down the player to a new deal. His current contract expires in 2020.
“I’m fine at Atletico. I’m close to renewing my contract. We’re on the right path,” the forward told Canal+. “I’m happy with everything that’s happened to me this season.”
