Lizarazu: Atletico Madrid will lose Griezmann on the cheap. He'll suit Barcelona

France World Cup winner Bixente Lizarazu believes Atletico Madrid will lose Antoine Griezmann on the cheap this summer.

Griezmann's contract will see his buyout clause set to €100m at the end of this season - with Barcelona expected to step in and trigger the option.

And at today's market rates, Lizarazu believes Atletico face missing out on millions.

He told Telefoot: "€100m is nothing for a great player. It's just a leg. He would be perfectly compatible with Barça. It would make an offensive armada.

"(Lionel) Messi likes to have a player in combination. With (Luis) Suarez, Griezmann could play around him. He has this collective game which suits the game of Barça. It would be an interesting career change."
