Antoine Griezmann, the surprise divorce?


By: Manu Tournoux

While his future at Atletico Madrid is most uncertain, Antoine Griezmann is also in the process of leaving his historic equipment supplier.

Antoine Griezmann has become a little more part of the legend of Atletico Madrid. Thanks to his double scored against Getafe on Tuesday, the French world champion has indeed equaled the goals record with the Colchoneros, until then held by Luis Aragones. With now 173 goals in 364 matches in the red and white jersey, the Frenchman will leave an indelible mark in the annals of the Madrid club.

He is an extraordinary footballer, an ideal person for Atlético and we need footballers of this profile. I hope we can take care of him and spend a little more time with him,” greeted Diego Simeone at the end of the meeting. But according to the Spanish press, the future of Antoine Griezmann is uncertain. “ Simeone is perfect for this club. It’s a joy and Miguel Angel (Gil Marin, general manager of Atlético Madrid) knows it. Now it’s my turn“, he had however whispered when Diego Simeone was extended last month, even though his contract runs until June 2026. But the French international could be tempted by a new challenge, according to certain Madrid media.

And another departure is in the cards, according to Foot Mercato journalist Sébastien Denis. “Antoine Griezmann could leave his historic equipment supplier Puma by the end of the season and would like to sign up with a brand with which he would end his playing career,” he wrote on X (formerly Twitter), specifying: “Coincidence or coincidence Decathlon, via its Kipsta brand, is about to equip a major French international football player…” A departure from Puma would be a real bolt from the blue since the Mâconnais has been linked to the German brand since 2010.
