Top journalist drops massive hint on Griezmann’s next destination

Antoine Griezmann is arguably the most sought-after footballer in the world at the moment.

Unlike Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Neymar and Luis Suarez, Griezmann – because of the fact he’s still with Atletico Madrid – is regarded as obtainable, not only by journalists but by Europe’s top clubs too.

It was reported earlier this month that Chelsea were prepared to pay the France international’s £85 million release clause, while Manchester United have apparently identified the 25-year-old as a potential long-term replacement for Wayne Rooney.

However, don’t be too surprised if the Premier League doesn’t turn out to be Griezmann’s next destination.

During a question-and-answer session with Sky Sports, today, Spanish football expert Guillem Balague hinted that one of La Liga’s biggest clubs – arguably the biggest, in fact – could make the versatile forward their next superstar signing.


Asked who Real Madrid’s next star signing might be, once they are permitted to register players again, Balague responded: “We are going to have to wait, but I can tell you players who will fit that mould and Griezmann is certainly one of them.”

After Diego Simeone made the surprise decision to reduce his contract at the Vicente Calderon by two years this month, there’s a growing feeling that both the Argentine coach and Griezmann will leave Atletico around the same time.

But would Griezmann really leave Atleti for the club’s fierce local rivals, Real?

At this moment in time, the idea of Griezmann joining Los Blancos sounds fanciful.

However, the Frenchman will be acutely aware that joining the 11-time European champions would significantly enhance his chances of adding medals to his collection.

Moreover, a move to the Bernabeu would probably enhance his chances of winning the Ballon d’Or.

Griezmann, though, will also be aware that joining Real Madrid would be regarded as a betrayal by all those associated with Atletico.
