The 19-year-old, now on-loan with Deportivo Alavés, is a target for Zinedine Zidane's side, who are prepared to break an unspoken rule that rival clubs do not dip into the squads on either side of the Madrid divide by activating the left-back's release clause.
"The important game is tomorrow, there are three points to play for".
However, with success has come attractors and Griezmann is constantly having to distance himself from speculation over a move at the end of the season with Manchester United leading the chase for his signature.
"I'm not preparing anything (for next season)". What I do is what is left for this season.
While Atletico still has one of the best defenses in Europe, Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zindane applauded its improvements in attack under Simeone, and Griezmann.
Liverpool are another side who are reportedly interested in signing the teenager, who has so far made 24 La Liga appearances for Alavés this season, averaging four defensive actions per game and winning an impressive 62% of his duels.

Griezmann has scored 79 goals in 149 games for Atletico since joining from Real Sociedad for 30 million euros ($32 million) in 2014. I don't know what will happen beyond that.
Real Madrid have beaten Atletico Madrid on more occasions than any other team in La Liga history (86).Real Madrid have found the net in 50 consecutive matches in all competitions, the best run ever for a La Liga side.
The 44-year-old manager was appointed Real Madrid boss in January 2016 and only needed months to lead Los Blancos to the Champions League crown. It is a derby and we know what type of game it will be. "I'm more relaxed now he's said he's not going to Barcelona". That's why the Real Madrid defense will be so pivotal.
Everything you need to know ahead of Los Blancos' derby clash with their city rivals in La Liga on Saturday. Diego Simeone is a rare contemporary example of a manager who has no interest in attempting to command possession of the ball, and he is sure to send out his team in a deep-lying strategy, relying on the pace of Antoine Griezmann and Yannick Carrasco to wreak havoc on the break if Real over-commit.
