Atlético Madrid is facing serious financial difficulties this summer. The leaders would like to get rid of the salary of Antoine Griezmann, which would interest Arsenal and West Ham.
According to the information relayed by brand, Atlético Madrid is 100 million euros above its wage bill ceiling. The Spanish club are reportedly trying to get rid of Antoine Griezmann to cut spending. TdF specifies that the striker has been offered to several English formations, including Arsenal and West Ham, who would be interested. The leaders’ objective would be to sell him right after his option to buy 40 million euros is activated (he is on loan from Barça). His departure could allow the club to validate the arrival of Axel Witsel, which is currently not possible. Note that Diego Simeone would not be in favor of the transfer of the Frenchman, but that two attackers would have been promised to him to compensate. It could be Maxi Gomez and Alexis Sanchez.
Enrique Cerezo has also indicated that the Colchoneros will have to sell for 40 million euros this transfer window.
