Torres to leave Atletico Madrid at season-end

Real Madrid 'launch Antoine Griezmann enquiry' after Atletico draw amid Barcelona interest

Antoine Griezmann's unusual celebration in the Madrid Derby has been explained

Antoine Griezmann cancels out an effort from Cristiano Ronaldo as Atletico Madrid come from behind to draw 1-1 with Real Madrid in La Liga.

Atletico have confirmed that they will honour Torres at their final home game of the season.

Fresh from scoring against Real Madrid in the derby, Atletico Madrid superstar Antoine Griezmann has responded to reports tipping him for a move to LaLiga giants FC Barcelona.

The Spain worldwide scored an impressive 65 goals in 102 league appearances for the Merseysiders before trading the Reds for a stint at Chelsea.

He said: "They're all important for me and he'll be an important player until the end of the season. I'm proud of the level this club have been at for the past decade, how we've competed against two superpowers like Madrid and Barcelona and how we've kept competing".

Atletico Madrid is a team filled with experienced wily campaigners and usually gets stronger as the season enters the final stages but more often than not, the team struggles in the opening stages of the campaign.

With Barcelona nine points clear at the top of La Liga, both Real Madrid and Atletico are playing for second place, and this match could go some way to deciding which team finish as runners-up.

And Don Balon say a positive display might hold the key to Kovacic remaining at the club this summer.

"This unbeaten record has not only been achieved this season, but also past year under [former coach] Luis Enrique", said Barca coach Valverde.

"I feel physically and mentally able to keep playing".

"I think the presence of (Diego) Costa has helped him a lot, having strength around him which allows him to be free". Atletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres plans to leave the club when his contract expires at the end of the season to seek more game time. I didn't express myself well. He also won the World Cup with Spain in 2010, as well as the European Championships in 2008 and 2012.
