Griezmann: Atletico will be almost 100 percent my last club in Europe

French star Antoine Griezmann insists that Atletico Madrid “will be almost 100 percent” his last club in Europe.

The 32-year-old Griezmann joined Atletico in 2014 and then left the club for Barcelona in 2019. However, he returned to Atletico after three years and became the club’s joint all-time leading scorer with 173 goals earlier this month.

In an interview with AS, Griezmann once again insisted that he will not play for another club in Europe and is open to joining MLS.

Griezmann said: “I know that the club is in favour of being able to make an effort and we will talk about it. Beyond Europe, what I would like later is the MLS, I have always recognised that. But Atletico will be almost one hundred percent my last club in Europe. It’s where I want to be, where I see myself happiest and here I am at home.

The 32-year-old France forward also said he is enjoying his time at Atletico more after his failed experience at Barcelona.

Griezmann added: “Yes, it’s true. When you leave you realise it more. You are happy here, but you don’t realise it and you live your day to day life. When you leave and go through a bad stage you realise what it was, what happened and you try to return to that affection, that level and now I wake up every morning and enjoy everything: going to the Hill to train, wearing this badge, being with my teammates, being with this coach… and my family are also very happy here.”

Griezmann is under contract with Atletico Madrid until 2026. He already has scored 16 goals this season.
