The Spain international is hoping his colleague will pen a new deal and commit his future to the club and ignore the ongoing rumors about a Barca switch. Koke hopes that France forward, Antoine Greizman will commit his immediate future to Atletico Madrid and one day exit the club as a legend despite ongoing links to Camp Nou.
The France international has spent the last five years in the Spanish capital and his performances have received such acclaim that he has twice come third in the Ballon d’Or voting.
Antoine Greizman has spent the last half a decade in the Spanish capital and his performances and contributions have received such praise that he has twice come third in the Ballon d’Or ratings.
The 28-year-old has been Atletico’s main source of goals once again this term, netting 21 in over 40 appearances across all competitions.
Barcelona has been touted as a possible next destination for Greizmann, despite the fact he signed a fresh deal at Wanda Metropolitano only last year, but Koke is hoping he stays put for the long term.
Barcelona has been named as a possible next destination for Greizman, despite the fact that he just penned a new deal at Wanda Metropolitano only the previous year, but Koke is hoping he goes nowhere for a long while.
“The player has shown what he is at Atletico,” Koke told Marca.
“We want him to continue, to be motivated, to continue to make history. Hopefully the day he leaves us will be a goodbye like Godin’s.”
Godin will be departing the club after nine years and Koke was eager to remember his exiting teammate, who has won La Liga, the Copa del Rey and two Europa Leagues with the club, while also reaching two Champions League finals.
“How could you not be emotional? I’ve gone through a lot with him,” Koke added.
