Antoine Griezmann has told Atletico Madrid he will leave the club this summer.

In a farewell message on the club’s website, the forward said:

“It’s been an incredible five years; Thank you very much for everything, I take you in the heart.”

Griezmann, 28, has been linked with a move to Atletico’s La Liga rivals Barcelona since last summer, and speculation has only intensified since the Catalonian club were embarrassed by Liverpool in the Champions League semi-final.

Sky Sports News understands Barcelona are ready to pay Griezmann’s £108m release clause.

Last summer, Griezmann released a half-hour long documentary on Spanish TV station Movistar to tell fans where his future would lie – Barcelona or Atletico.

Having recorded two endings – one which said he would stay, and another which said he would go – Griezmann revealed he would continue playing with Atletico.

Griezmann went on to lift the World Cup with France one month later, scoring four goals, including one in the 4-2 final win over Croatia.

Atletico will finish the season second in La Liga and without a trophy after blowing a 2-0 first-leg home lead in the Champions League last-16 against Juventus.

Griezmann joined from Real Sociedad in 2014. Last season he helped Atletico win the Europa League.

Atiku Raises Loud Alarm On Prevalence Of Poverty In Nigeria

<

div>

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the February 2019 election, Atiku Abubakar, on Saturday said the recent report by the United Nations Development Programme, published on July 11, which said that over 98 million Nigerians were living in multi-dimensional poverty, was frightening.

He said the report indicated that poverty had become the fastest growing venture in Nigeria over the last four years.

The former Vice President, in a statement by his media adviser, Paul Ibe, said there was an urgent and compelling need for institutions of the Nigerian state to understand that it was an appalling dereliction of duty to stand idly by and allow misery multiply in the populace.

According to him, this was no longer a grassroots problem.

“The failure of our economy over the last four years affects everyone from top to bottom. Four years ago, Aliko Dangote, Nigeria’s richest man, was worth $25bn. However, his net worth in 2019 is less than half that. He joined thousands of industrialists whose wealth and their ability to produce, had eroded in recent years, and continue to do so.
“With the National Bureau of Statistics reporting a net job loss of over six million since 2015, we see that if industrialists have their wealth eroding, it affects their ability to create opportunities, which means that the trickle-down effect gradually dries.”
Atiku stated that the greatest national security threat Nigeria faced in 2019 was not Boko Haram/ISWAP or bandits but the ‘creation of the largest wave of poverty in human history in the country.’
He warned that the world was noticing, hence Foreign Direct Investment was shifting from Nigeria to Ghana, making Ghana the top recipient of FDI in West Africa in the last year.

He said, “And in the wake of this report by the UNDP, we are greeted with nonchalance by those who led us into this crisis. It is as though they think that as long as they and their families are not amongst those 98 million extremely poor Nigerians, things can carry on as before.

“But that cannot be allowed to be the case. Those who have the ability, including the Council of State, all former leaders, elder-statesmen, and especially the other arms of government, must begin to collaborate for solutions before the number increases from 98 million to all 198 million Nigerians.

“We must remember that we are stakeholders in the Nigerian project; stakeholders who must speak up for those 98 million people who are losing their voices to poverty.”
