La Liga By: Linus Onyeze | 09/05/2018
Atletico Madrid are growing increasingly ‘fed up with Barcelona’s attitude’ as their La Liga rivals continue their open pursuit of Antoine Griezmann.Barcelona are interested in making a summer move for Griezmann and have been public about their interest in the France striker, something that has now gotten on the nerves of the Atletico bosses, with CEO Miguel Angel Gil Martin releasing a statement on the club’s official website which read: “We're fed up with Barcelona's attitude.“That a president, player and a board member speak the way they've done about the future of a player with an existing contract and just a few days before disputing a European final, is an absolute lack of respect towards Atlético Madrid and its fans."Atlético de Madrid's stance is very clear and has been made public on numerous occasions. Not once have we negotiated for Griezmann nor do we have any intention to do so.
