Antoine Griezmann is among the important players in Atletico Madrid’s history. Although the player had to settle for the role of impact substitute this term.
Diego Simeone recently made a suggestion that the France forward’s playing time is restricted. In order to prevent the purchase clause in his loan agreement from Barcelona to activate.
What happens if Atletico Madrid lets Antoine Griezmann play more than the limit?
The player Antoine Griezmann has accepted that he will play only 30 minutes per match this season. However, Atletico Madrid cannot let the player play as it will breach the clause from Barcelona.
They would have to pay approximately €40m. Infact the Frenchman has come to the field for 30 minutes every match this season. Hence, proving it’s not a coincidence.
Griezmann stated that. “I feel like a man of the club, I am happy here and I only want to play here and give everything for the club, for Cholo and for the fans.”
Atletico Madrid won’t let the player go
If he participates in any more games, a clause would be activated requiring Atletico Madrid to pay his parent club, Barcelona permanently. They don’t want to do that because he will be available to sign after the season is over on a free transfer.
He will probably start games on the bench up to that point. Nevertheless, he continues to have an influence, recently scoring two late winners, and has accepted his situation.
