Simeone Rules Out Everton Job, Restates Allegiance To Atletico Madrid

Manchester City have contacted the representatives of Atletico Madrid superstar Antoine Griezmann, joining the list of major clubs to register an interest in the forward, according to SPORT. "He didn't go away with the national team because it was better for him to keep working here".

The 26-year-old has a €100million (£89million) release clause at the Madrid club, which in today's market seems reasonable, and there is a good chance that he will end a four-year stint at Atleti next summer.

"I have been here since the speculation over Fernando Torres [move to Liverpool in 2007] started and they will play where they want to play". Barcelona, who are looking to continue their remarkable run of 10 wins from 11 league games, will also be in the Spanish capital on Sunday to face Leganes.

Cristiano Ronaldo is fit and running for this game and so is Sergio Ramos.

FCA regulated Forex and CFDs broker Plus500 Ltd (LON:PLUS) has announced that it has extended its official Main Sponsor agreement with Club Atlético de Madrid, SAD, for the 2018/2019, 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 seasons, with both parties actively considering extending the relationship further.

The poor goal-scoring form so far this La Liga season by Ronaldo and strike partner Karim Benzema was not something that had required his personal intervention, Zidane added.

The sides head into the 161st league instalment of this fixture locked on 23 points apiece, already eight adrift of leaders Barcelona who have made a near-perfect start.

Gareth Bale and Keylor Navas both remain sidelined, but Zidane said he expected both back soon. The team is enjoying a good league campaign but we haven't seen Griezmann's best moment yet.

Atletico Madrid is a Spanish professional football club based in Madrid that plays in LaLiga Santander, commonly known as 'La Liga', which is the top professional association football division in Spain.
