Griezmann apologises after painting himself black for fancy-dress party

Antoine Griezmann Atletico Madrid

The family of the 26-year-old Atletico Madrid striker are said to have met with Barcelona president Josep Bartomeu to finalise personal terms ahead of the France global moving to the Camp Nou next summer.

The Atletico Madrid and France forward's initial tweet, captioned "80's Party", showed Griezmann in an NBA All Stars basketball kit with heavily darkened skin and an afro-style wig. "Two days ago he returned to training with the group".

He endured a hard start to the current campaign, but has seen his production pick up over recent weeks, with the former Real Sociedad man having racked up 7 goals and 5 assists between La Liga and the Champions League to this point.

However, the France global instead chose to commit his future to Atletico by signing a new long-term deal after the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas) upheld their Federation Internationale de Football Association transfer embargo.

Do you think Griezmann will leave the Spanish side in January? "I love them growing up, I'm not ungrateful", Argentinian Simeone said.

"If a player comes to me and says: "Coach, I have a once in a lifetime chance to play for a certain team, I want to leave".

I am a fan of the Harlem globetrotters and the good times.

However, Barca appear willing to meet his 100 million euro (NZ$167 million) buyout clause as they seek to again unite Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez with a prolific attacker following the departure of Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain in August for a world record 222 million euros.

"Of course Griezmann will be able to leave at some point, as Diego Costa, Diego Ribas and Arda Turan have gone", Simeone told French sports daily L'Equipe.

This one could be the story of the transfer window.
