"The demand is huge at this level, the margin for error small and any moment of doubt seems bigger than it is".
Griezmann may have committed his future to Atletico, but there is an overriding feeling amongst supporters, the media, and perhaps even teammates that he already has one eye on the exit door.
Twice Champions League finalists in the past four seasons, Atletico Madrid are staring an embarrassing and financially damaging Champions League exit in the face unless they beat an in-form Roma today. "I have to work to take the team to the top".
It's almost as if Griezmann is living out his life as if the Manchester United transfer had happened and he's a fully fledged Galactico. "Me leaving? I haven't spoken to the president about that".
"Bayern are only interested in deals which are sensible and which will suit the club".
"I have nothing against England", he continues, "except for the weather".
Speaking earlier this week, Griezmann reiterated that he was not thinking about moving away and expressed enthusiasm at the prospect of Diego Costa and Vitolo entering the fold in January.
He has managed just three goals in 14 appearances in all competitions, and when compared to the same time last season, he had scored eight goals. It's difficult to see where Griezmann would fit in at Barca without Suarez's position coming under threat, but at this point in time it feels as though it's not a conundrum they need to solve.

"I have not made a decision".
