Griezmann can pick his club but Barcelona have Messi as bait

The FC crew speculate on whether Barcelona or PSG are front-runners to land Antoine Griezmann after the Atleti star announced he'll depart this summer.

Antoine Griezmann will have plenty of suitors now he's announced his departure from Atletico Madrid this summer: Manchester United tried hard to sign him in 2017 but need him now more than ever, while he would amplify the trophy chances of PSG, Juventus, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid without any question.

Even if you are cynical about a guy who drew out the "is he or isn't he?" saga for an eternity a year ago before using the daft "The Decision" video to announce that he wasn't going anywhere, you...

The transfer window for Europe's biggest clubs is set to open soon. Find out when here and rest assured that Transfer Talk will continue to scour the world's media and set correspondents loose to see what's on the agenda for the summer.

Griezmann rejected Barca once, but as Atletico's season slips away, he has another decision to make

ESPN FC's Ale Moreno breaks down the latest transfer rumblings, including: Antoine Griezmann, Hirving Lozano and many more.

Antoine Griezmann wanted to sit at Lionel Messi's table but not play in his team. Well, he did. And then he didn't. And then he did again. And, in the end, he didn't, only maybe that wasn't the end? It seemed to be all over, but less than a year later, the question has been asked again, the issue raised once more. Confused? Not half as confused as he was. "Was"? Is?

In June 2018, the France international decided that he was going to stay at Atletico Madrid rather than join Barcelona, turning down...

Atletico Madrid are nearing the end of the Simeone era. Will Griezmann, Saul & Co. still be there next season?

"I'm not going to deny it, I won't lie: things are even harder now," Diego Godin admitted. "I said it was an even fight, but it's not any more: the gap is considerable now although we can't think about that, we have to focus on recovering, overcoming this. We're gutted and sad. It's been a hard week. There was so much hope... it's a painful blow. Football has moments like this and we have to carry on; there's no other choice."

There was no other choice, and no real point either. Four days after...

Champions League belongs to Cristiano Ronaldo as Juventus come back to beat Atletico

TURIN, Italy -- Last month in Madrid, Atletico Madrid were entirely dominant against a Juventus side that offered absolutely no attacking threat and won 2-0. On Wednesday in Turin, Juventus were entirely dominant against an Atletico side that offered absolutely no attacking threat and won 3-0 to advance, seemingly against the odds.

This was the archetypal two-legged European tie, a contest that outlines the difficulty of playing away from home in a hostile atmosphere. It was essentially won by the...

Alvaro Morata looks like he's found home at Atletico even with his Real roots

Morata's arrival at Atletico was greeted by some scepticism initially but his early form and fit shows that it might be the best club for him.

Goals define strikers. The type of goal, the moments in which they are scored, what they signify. In which case I wonder whether Alvaro Morata has noticed that three of his most important goals came for Juventus and Chelsea against the two biggest clubs from Spain's capital?

A year after Real Madrid put Atletico through the greatest misery in their history, equalising in the Lisbon Champions League final with seconds left and then winning 4-1 in extra time, Morata, wearing the black and white of...
