Striker Griezmann not for sale: Atletico Madrid president

Madrid, May 27 (IANS) Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo has assured his club supporters that star striker Antoine Griezmann is not for sale at any price despite the player’s agent saying that he has spoken to a number of clubs.

The French international has been a talisman for Atletico since joining here in 2014 and in this season he has scored 32 goals from 53 appearances.

“Antoine Griezmann is an Atletico Madrid player,” Cerezo was quoted as saying by dailymail.co.uk on Friday.

“He also has a long-term contract with the club. I don’t want him to leave.”

Asked what price the former Real Sociedad man is worth, he joked that it was “unpayable”.

The 25-year-old’s current contract does have a release clause which is around 60 million pounds ($87.8 million), but Cerezo did not reveal the details.

“I don’t remember, but it’s very high,’ he added. It’s in line with the value of the player,” he stated.
