Los Rojiblancos are currently appealing a Court of Arbitration ban that will not allow them to purchase players this summer.
If Atletico are unable to replace the Frenchman – they have agreed verbally with Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette – then Griezmann may find himself at the Vicente Calderon for one more season, which is a situation that he is well aware of.
"The club will see what to do, it will depend on the transfer [situation]," Griezmann said at the launch of his autobiography, 'Behind the Smile'.
"I do not know if they understand, but all the players, you the media, my family, know that I love football to win trophies. I want to taste this."
