Griezmann discusses ‘possible’ Man United moveNovember 22, 2017
Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann has revealed that he could join Premier League side Manchester United.
The summer months saw the Frenchman linked with a move from the Wanda Metropolitano as Diego Costa’s return to the club was finalised, allowing interest from the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea to be heard in English and Spanish media.
La Liga duo Barcelona and Real Madrid were also said to be interested and that has continued into the current season, despite a poor run of form.
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.
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.
Having been hauled off by Simeone in the Madrid derby on Saturday evening, which ended 0-0; the former Real Sociedad man has been linked with an exit again.
Now, reported by Football Espana and in his biography; he has spoken of a potential move to Man United.
“In June, I extended my contract with the club until 2022 and that is my link,” the biography reveals.
“Maybe I’m missing out on titles but this club can provide everything to make me happy but I have not made a decision on my future, who’s to say one day I won’t leave.
“There are a number of factors to think about but the only thing against England is the weather. Manchester United are a possibility.
“I’m regularly asked about my future and whilst I love Atletico and have a great Coach and fantastic team-mates, I won’t rule out anything.”
Griezmann and Atletico prepare this week to face Roma on Wednesday evening in the Champions League, where nothing short of a win could see them eliminated from the competition.
