Antoine Griezmann will have the final decision over a potential move to Barcelona, Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo has confirmed.

The report claims that Barcelona's board members have already floated the idea of Suarez's sale, providing they receive a good enough offer.

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has confirmed he spoke with Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann's agent last October, as speculation continues that the France global could move to Camp Nou for €100 million this summer.

"I don't know what relevance them eating together has", he said.

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu earlier revealed he met the France international's agent in October 2017, just like how he meets agents of other players.

Griezmann has a £88m (€100m) release clause in his contract at the Wanda Metropolitano.

The uncertainty over Griezmann's future could not have come at a worse time for Atletico as they prepare for next week's Europa League final against Marseille.


But it seems that the Atletico Madrid is not very happy with it as they have grown "fed up with Barcelona's attitude" as the Catalans continue to openly court Griezmann.

Gil Marin also suggested he may take action over the perceived "inappropriate" approach.

He added: "I also told [Bartomeu] that in the chance the player exercises his right to nullify his contract due to their pressure throughout the season, that Atletico Madrid would demand Barcelona compensation for their inappropriate behaviour".

"He's a great player, I have no doubt about that. Enough is enough. I hope this statement serves its goal and that us Atlético fans can enjoy this moment and prepare ourselves for a final like we should".

Griezmann looked set to leave Atletico for Manchester United last summer until he performed a U-turn, deciding to stay put out of loyalty after the club had their transfer ban upheld.

Griezmann, one of Atletico's key players, has been heavily linked with a move to the Nou Camp at the end of the season, with Spanish media reporting that Barca are willing to pay his 100 million euro ($118.64 million) release clause.

"I can not tell you anything else because I do not know anything else".
