  • Griezmann is reportedly a Barcelona transfer target this summer

The France global, 27, has been heavily linked with a move away from the Wanda Metropolitano this summer and showed his class as Atleti ran out comfortable 3-0 winners in Lyon.

"If he decides that he does not want to continue with us, we have to respect his decision". I'm not optimistic or pessimistic.

"We're very happy. We've been doing well year after year", Simeone said.

"We're going to try to increase Oblak's clause, but what we have to do is trust him", Gil Marin told Spanish programme Cadena COPE.

But with mounting speculation of Simeone leaving the club for Arsenal, Griezmann hopes he stays at Atletico for an even more illustrious career.

The scoreline mirrored the Spanish side's last Europa League final win over Athletic Bilbao in 2012 and cemented their status as one of the continent's most consistent teams since Argentine coach Diego Simeone transformed their fortunes.

France forward Antoine Griezmann, who is a doubt for the clash against the home-based Nigerian Super Eagles team due to World Cup preparations, scored twice as Atletico de Madrid swept aside Marseille.

"I thought it was emotional", Gabi explained.

"Of course, this victory will help him stay, and more so in the way we have won it, being as decisive as he is for us", he said.

Griezmann accepted that Atletico had been forced to work very hard by a Marseille side who started the game on the front foot.

Torres, whose second spell with his beloved Atletico finishes at the end of this season when his contract expires, replaced double goalscorer Antoine Griezmann in the 90th minute and lifted the trophy together with captain Gabi. If we want to play the Champions League or the Europa League next year, we will have to go through mental challenges.
