The Antoine Griezmann saga is over. Atlético Madrid have concluded a deal with the France forward that sees him extend his contract with Los Rojiblancos until 2022.

Griezmann to receive big pay-packet increase 

As was initially revealed by AS earlier in June, Griezmann has decided to accept the club's offer of renewed terms, which are to bring him a considerable pay rise.

The 26-year-old has been heavily linked with a transfer away from Atlético, but told an interview on French TV a week ago that it would be a "dirty move" to leave in the wake of the Court of Arbitration for Sport's decision to uphold a transfer ban that prevents the LaLiga side from registering new signings this summer.

Griezmann's previous contract extended by a year

Griezmann's new Atlético agreement sees him add a further year to the contract that he penned with Los Colchoneros in June 2016.

The former Real Sociedad ace has been at Atleti since July 2014, scoring a total of 83 goals for the club in 160 appearances in all competitions.

'Le Petit Prince' follows team-mate Jorge Resurrección 'Koke', who put pen to paper on a new, long-term deal in May, in committing to Atlético Madrid.
