The striker signed a new contract with the Atletico before the World Cup, but is said to be reconsidering his future after the early exit of his team from the Champions League
Barcelona reopened talks with Atletico Madrid after the signing of Antoine Griezmann, as reported.
The striker, 27, came very close to joining the Catalan giants last summer, but eventually promised his future to Diego Simeone's team by signing a new deal to keep him in the Spanish capital until 2023.
However, Griezmann says he is very frustrated by the early exit from the Champions League on his side – Atletico was dismantled by a hat-trick by Cristiano Ronaldo at the start of this week – and according to L & # 39; Team, now trying to leave the club.
Griezmann's current clause is £ 102 million, expected to be activated before June, but will increase if no club moves for him.
Furthermore, at the time of signing his new contract, the player instructed his agents to include clauses in the agreement to allow him to leave the club under certain conditions – and one of the first releases in Europe was one of them.

However, Griezmannn will have to take a serious cut to enter the Catalan club.
The heads of the Camp Nou are offering the Frenchman a contract until 2024, where he would earn 13 million pounds a year, which is equivalent to 5 million pounds less than his current salary.
Last summer, Blaugrana saw Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Gerard Pique actively encouraging the club to sign the striker so Barça negotiators knew that a potential deal would bode well for the 39; current team.
This season, Griezmann has scored 12 goals and added seven more assists in 28 LaLiga games.
