Atletico Madrid are close to completing the signing of Real Sociedad winger Antoine Griezmann, according to Spanish news site AS.
The player will soon say goodbye to Sociedad, an imminent move confirmed by the fact that he updated his Twitter biography to not include an association with the club.
Griezmann is one of the most sought-after players in European football and Sociedad want a good price for his transfer.
They initially tried to hold out for a €30 million deal, a fee that would trigger his release clause, but appeared to have reached a compromise with Atletico, agreeing to the figure of €25m.
