Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone has chosen to ignore speculation linking Antoine Griezmann with a departure from the Wanda Metropolitano in the summer

Griezmann has been strongly linked with a move to Barcelona in the summer after another impressive season in La Liga. Following Atletico’s 3-0 win over Celta Vigo, the Frenchman has now scored 11 goals with 4 assists in his past 10 matches for the club.

But Simeone has refused to discuss the reports: “I have to talk about realities,”

“Today he is with us, he plays fantastically well and there is very good togetherness with the fans.

“He scored a great goal, he made the second goal and he worked for the team. This is the reality – tomorrow will be tomorrow.” said the Argentine, according to Goal.

Griezmann has scored a total of 21 goals with 11 assists in 36 matches across all competitions with Atletico currently sitting in second place in La Liga and eight points behind leaders Barcelona.
