"Your progression has no limits, you have everything to succeed and we know that the number 7 shirt that we are going to give you is the one of commitment, Welcome to Atlético de Madrid", the red-and-white president told him. A commitment that Griezmann has not shown with the entity, at least in the last two seasons.
"The word that best defines Joao is talent. He has a great race ahead of us and we are very proud that he has chosen the rojiblancos colors ahead of other great deals he has had ", added the president of Atlético about his new star.
