Antoine Griezmann: Barcelona transfer approved by Diego SImeone after Europa League win

The star of the 2016 European Championships - he won the tournament's Golden Boot for scoring most goals - has returned to top form of late and he ruthlessly ended Marseille's hopes of winning their first continental title since their shock Champions League win in 1993.

However, the 27-year-old now looks set to end his four-year stay at Atletico to move to La Liga champions Barcelona, who are reportedly close to activating Griezmann's £88m release clause this summer.

Griezmann, who grew up near Lyon but left early to pursue his career at Real Sociedad, previously had just the 2014 Spanish Supercopa to show for four seasons with Atletico. He's played three finals with us and won two.

Antoine Griezmann is expected to sign a new contract with Atletico Madrid that will end all talk he could be lured away by either Barcelona or Manchester United this summer.

Antoine Griezmann was the hero for Atletico Madrid as the French striker scored twice in their 3-0 win over Marseille in Wednesday's Europa League final in Lyon, allowing his club to win the trophy for the third time in nine seasons.

"Florentino called to wish me good luck and said we'll see each other in the UEFA Super Cup", he revealed.

"Your feeling for a club gets stronger every game, every year".

Atletico took Griezmann off in the final moments to give veteran forward Fernando Torres a send-off, as he came on to a huge ovation from the red-and-white horde of Atletico fans.

Enraged Pliskova damages umpire's chair, Halep and Wozniacki cruise
Karolina Pliskova is now the world number six in the women's singles rankings, and topped the pile as recently as July 2017. At 5-5 in the match-deciding set, Pliskova overhead smashed a slow-dropping ball for what she assumed was a winning point.

"It was a dream of mine to win a trophy with Atleti, with Simeone and with my team-mates", Griezmann added.

"We hoped that he'd be at 100 percent and we gave him a fitness test this morning". He's made me into a better player and one of the best in the world. "If he stays we'll keep growing because we are destined to keep growing".

The trophy guarantees the victor a spot in the Champions League next season, although Atletico are already assured of that thanks to their league standing in Spain, the capital side need to earn at least a point in their final league match in order to secure 2nd place in La Liga, with Real Madrid 3 points behind. "Firstly, we had the best chance to go ahead, and secondly, an error from us meant we fell behind", said Garcia.
