"[Griezmann] is a great French player like myself and I am sure we will make a lot of goals together," he told reporters.

"Though has not called me yet, he is on vacation," he joked.

"I am very happy to be here and to play in a big club like Atletico," he said.

"I talked to [Simeone] on the phone and he told me he loved me and that we will have a great season.

"I like the Atletico team and mentality. I think I can do many things here this year. I did not hesitate to come, had everything clear."
