Antoine Griezmann (born 21 March 1991) is a French footballer. He plays for Atlético Madrid and the French national team as a forward.

He was a part of the French national team selection that won the 2018 FIFA World Cup.[3][4]

Club career[change | change source]

Real Sociedad[change | change source]

Griezmann played his first professional match with Real Sociedad on 2 September 2009 in a Copa del Rey match against Rayo Vallecano. He scored his first professional goal in a 2-0 win against Huesca.

Atletico Madrid[change | change source]

On 28 July 2014, Griezmann transferred to Atlético Madrid from Real Sociedad for a fee of 30 million Euros.[5][6] He scored his first goal for the club in a game against Olympiacos F.C.. They lost 3-2.

Griezmann scored twice in the 2018 UEFA Europa League Final against Olympique de Marseille. Atletico won 3-0.[7] Barcelona offered him a contract in June 2018, but he declined the offer and stayed at Atletico for one more year. [8]

Barcelona[change | change source]

On 12 July 2019, Griezmann signed to FC Barcelona after they bought his 120 million euro buy-out clause. The transfer created a lot of controversy because experts claim Barcelona paid 80 million euros less than the actual release clause of 200 million.[9][10]

Personal life[change | change source]

Griezmann got married to Erika Choperena on 15 June 2017. [11] They have two children: a daughter named Mia, born on 8 April 2016, and a son named Amaro, born on 8 April 2019.
