Atlético agree deal to sign Thomas Lemar from Monaco

Atlético agree deal to sign Thomas Lemar from Monaco

It was no secret that Atletico had been looking for attacking reinforcements, as the club reluctantly sold both Yannick Carrasco and Nicolas Gaitan to Chinese Super League side Dalian Yifang in February, well after the transfer window had closed in LaLiga.

The France worldwide, who is in Russian Federation for the World Cup, joined Monaco in 2015 from Caen and made his global debut in November 2016.

Griezmann said earlier on Tuesday that he had made up his decision on his future but would not reveal his plans, though sources have since said all signs point to him returning to Atletico.

Griezmann is expected to announce his future before his nation's World Cup campaign begins against Australia on Saturday.


The France forward, who scored 29 goals and created 15 others last season, was strongly linked with Manchester United last summer before a contract tying him to Atletico until 2022 was agreed.

However, Griezmann disappointed plenty of football fans by saying: "I am very sorry, but today I am not going to give my decision". "I know many people were waiting for that but this isn't the right day to do so".

Barcelona are reportedly ready to trigger Griezmann's €100million release clause. However, those figures will revert to the previous numbers after July 1.

Puig is one of the most talented footballers of the younger generation and has been deemed to step into Lionel Messi's boots at the Camp Nou when the Argentine talisman steps down from the club.
