Diego Simeone opens up on Antoine Griezmann transfer


Griezmann, a 5-foot-9 forward, has been playing for Atletico Madrid since 2014.

Soccer star Antoine Griezmann has apologized for any offence caused after posting an image of himself on social media in blackface as part of an National Basketball Association party costume on Sunday.

The Atletico Madrid star was attending an "80s party" as he informed fans on social media, uploading an image of himself on to both Twitter and Instagram.

The star also reportedly posted a terribly insensitive video of himself in the NBA All Star costume. "I think that with the arrivals of Costa and Vitolo we will be stronger".

As if this transfer saga has not rumbled on for long enough already, expect it to intensify even further in the coming weeks, with Griezmann likely to be heading to Manchester United or Barcelona.

"After receiving a "yes" in response, an agreement was reached with the French goalscorer involving Pep Segura, Barca's general manager, and Robert Fernandez, the director of football".

The change in heart came after Griezmann felt he couldn't abandon the side at a time when they were unable to replace him.

Atletico will be able to sign players in January 2018, after serving out a transfer ban.
