Griezmann to ignore Atleti training

Barcelona target Antoine Griezmann will ignore his club Atletico Madrid’s demand to turn up for training on Sunday, Spanish daily Marca reported.

“The French player has informed Atletico Madrid that he won’t be going to training,” the paper said on Saturday.

An Atletico spokesperson told AFP: “Whether he tells us or not, it changes nothing. He is under contract with our club until 2023 and must resume training tomorrow like all the other players.”

On Friday, Atletico accused Barcelona and Griezmann of a “lack of respect” after the Catalan giants’ president Josep Maria Bartomeu revealed that the two clubs had held talks about the signing of the France international.

Atletico claimed Griezmann had told them he had struck a deal with Barcelona in March.
