Antoine Griezmann to Barcelona: Atletico Madrid star coy on transfer speculation

GETTYAntoine Griezmann scored twice as Atletico Madrid beat Marseille to win the Europa League

The France worldwide has been linked with moves to some of Europe's top clubs, but the speculation - particularly in recent weeks - is most rampant about a transfer to Barcelona.

Payet, who was suffering from a muscle injury, and Griezmann had started together in the French national team's attack when it finished second at Euro 2016.

Oblak; Vrsaljko (Juanfran, min. 46), Gimenez, Godin, Hernandez; Correra (Thomas, min. 88), Niguez, Gabi, Koke; Diego Costa, Griezmann (Torres, min. 90).

"I never gave him anything, he's the only player here who won the World Cup but he has had to work for everything and he leaves a very good legacy for other players to learn from".

"Winning with Atletico was a dream I had as a child and it has become a reality", he said. "There has been joy and sadness, but I am so happy and I hope to be able to live moments like this again". I have no doubt that there are certain things that could make it more likely that he stays. It also lost another Champions League final to Real Madrid in 2014 and the gulf in experience was evident. "So on a sporting level we aren't so far from the clubs that have more power than us".

Griezmann was in superb form against Marseille, bagging his 28th and 29th goals of the season with a strike in each half as Atleti sealed a third Europa League title in eight years.

But it was a flat night for their huge support, who threatened to ruin the occasion by constantly lighting flares and setting off firecrackers at one end of the stadium, with some even being thrown onto the pitch towards the end.

Donald Trump Jr. Is Literally a Cartoon Villain
Trump Jr responded "I love it" when first offered the political "dirt" on Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee. From the beginning, entertainment promoter Rob Goldstone said, he thought it was a bad idea. "Let's see if that holds".

Garcia admitted Payet had been "a bit apprehensive" before the game.

Rudi Garcia's side did not create enough to break down one of Europe's toughest defences and their chances of causing an upset took a blow with Dimitri Payet limping off injured in the first half.

"This cup has given us a lot", he said.

"The scoreline is harsh but the better team won".

Asked about man-of-the-match Griezmann following Atletico's third Europa League triumph, Gil Marin told Cadena SER: "It will depend on his feelings more than anything else".

Marseille had started the match brightly, but came to regret an early miss by lone forward Valere Germain, who lofted a shot high over the bar after being presented with an open goal.
