Manchester United transfer target gives major hint over future plans

Posted by

Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann has given a clear hint over his future amid speculation that Manchester United could swoop for him in next summer’s transfer window.

The France international has spoken about the prospects of playing alongside Diego Costa and Vitolo, both of whom are going to link up with Diego Simeone’s side this winter when the club’s transfer ban ends.

Griezmann does not seem to have a departure in mind any time soon, as he hit out at speculation over his future.

‘I do not regret having stayed at Atletico,’ Griezmann told Telefoot, as translated by the Metro.

Asked about leaving in January, he said: ‘No. In addition, Diego Costa and Vitolo will come, so we’ll try to keep the team high enough.

‘These two reinforcements will do us good. An exit agreement? I did not speak about that with the president.

‘I didn’t express myself very well. It’s like the other day … when they asked me: “Would you like to play with Mbappe and Neymar?” I answered yes but that does not mean that I want to go to PSG.’

ESPN have claimed United could try to sign Griezmann next summer, but it remains to be seen if the 26-year-old can be persuaded to leave his current club where he seems happy and settled.

Griezmann has played in Spain since joining Real Sociedad’s youth team at a young age and may be happy to continue in La Liga.
