Bayern Munich not interested in GriezmannNovember 21, 2017
Bayern Munich will not make a move for Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann, according to a report.
Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has been drawn to comment on the rumours linking the Frenchman with a move to the Bundesliga, but he said there was no interest from the German champions.
“The truth is nobody here has even discussed Griezmann,” Salihamidzic told Sky.
“We won’t join in with the madness of the transfer market as some of the fees involved are not worth talking about.
“Bayern are only interested in deals which are sensible and which will suit the club.
“The transfer window does not open until January and we constantly look at ways of improving but we have decided upon a few things.”
The 26-year-old has not scored for Diego Simeone’s side since the 27th of September when he netted against Chelsea in the Champions League, whilst his last league goal came four days previous against Sevilla.
Rewind back to the summer and the long talked about return of Diego Costa was the main talking point around the Wanda Metropolitano but in the background remained little whispers on the future of French international Griezmann.
La Liga duo Barcelona and Real Madrid made tentative contact over a potential move, whilst Premier League giants Manchester United and Chelsea were also linked.
The former have been keen on bringing the former Real Sociedad man to Old Trafford for sometime with boss Jose Mourinho a big admirer, whilst Stamford Bridge officials are also keen, having lost Costa in that aforementioned transfer.
Griezmann is experiencing his worst form in an Atleti shirt and perhaps in La Liga since his arrival back in 2005, leaving his future up in the air.
