Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke believes teammate Antoine Griezmann is happy at Atletico Madrid, but however suggests that any player who isn’t focused on the club is free to leave.Rumors emerging this week claimed the France international has already agreed a €100 million move to Barcelona next summer, as it is also believed that, Manchester United could also return with a new bid.The 26 year old suggested he was open to a move to Paris Saint-Germain, but Atletico president Enrique Cerezo said he thought the forward was only joking.Asked about his opinion on Griezmann’s future, Koke said Atletico only want players to stay if they are totally committed.“Talking about Griezmann, he had the chance to leave after the last season, but he didn’t. So I think that means he likes it here,” said Koke, who has been with Atletico since he was eight years old.“We always say if somebody doesn’t like it here, he’s free to leave. The club and I want the best, we want committed players. “Those who aren’t [committed], just have to ask for a transfer. We only want players who are 100 percent focused here.“[Griezmann] does look committed to Atletico. In the last month, the reality is that we haven’t been any good and little by little we will improve.”Atletico Madrid however will be battling it with city rivals Real Madrid for the first time since they moved to the Wanda Metropolis Stadium, as they fight to keep up the chase on Barcelona who are eight points clear of both clubs.
