INSIDER: Simeone wants Barcelona striker Griezmann back with Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone is keen to bring Antoine Griezmann back from Barcelona.

That's according to Okdiario's chief pundit Eduardo Inda, while speaking on El Chiringuito.

Inda declared, "Diego Pablo Simeone has asked the club to try this summer for a very important player like Antoine Griezmann to return.

"He is a player who costs Barcelona a lot of money, who has not finished fitting in.

"He has had problems with (Lionel) Messi and he would be delighted to go back to Atlético. His main problem is his salary, which is more than €20m.

"As Messi does not like him, he has not finished fitting in. If you arrive and they receive you badly, the normal thing is that you are prepared to leave."
