Atletico Madrid eye shock swoop for Sergio Aguero

Atletico Madrid ‘Fed Up’ with Barca over Griezmann’s transfer news Atletico Madrid eye shock swoop for Sergio Aguero

"Griezmann for €100m is cheap, it's the truth", he told a press conference.

Both Atletico and Aguero's representatives have made a decision to leave the negotiations until after the World Cup in Russian Federation so the striker can focus on guiding Argentina to World Cup glory.

Antoine Griezmann of Atletico de Madrid scores their opening goal during the La Liga match between Club Atletico Madrid and CD Leganes.

However, a high-ranking Barcelona source told ESPN FC they "can't possibly believe that is true" at this moment in time.

While they already have Suarez, Lionel Messi, Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho at the club, Griezmann's arrival would excite those associated with the Camp Nou giants. In an official statement, CEO Gil Marin expressed the Red's stance on Griezmann. But the reality is that he's part of our team and he wants to win this title with us, then at the end of the season we will see.

"We're going to play against a team that plays well and has a good coach", said Simeone. Without doubt he has been our most decisive player this season, so we want him to stay.

"That a president, player and a board member speak the way they've done about the future of a player with an existing contract and just a few days before disputing a European final, is an absolute lack of respect towards Atlético Madrid and its fans".

Atletico Madrid are close to sealing a deal for PSG forward Edinson Cavani as a replacement for star player Antoine Griezmann, according to Mundo Deportivo.

"I am very happy with him, with the group, and right now he is thinking of winning a title. I hope this statement serves its goal and that us Atletico fans can enjoy this moment and prepare ourselves for a final like we should".

But Simeone is ignoring the speculation, saying nothing will distract him from the Saturday's trip to Getafe and the Europa League final showdown with Marseille next week.

He's left his future beyond this season up in the air, though, and said last week that he's waiting on the result of talks with Atletico before deciding his future amid the constant speculation.
