Antoine Griezmann will play for Barcelona next season, according to Atletico Madrid CEO Miguel Angel Gil Marin. The player's release clause is now €200million, after he signed a new contract with Atletico just last summer.

"Frankly, I think my credibility is probably higher than the media's", she said".
