Griezmann admits Man Utd move is a possibility

In his biography, "Behind a smile, the life of the Little Prince told by himself", the 26 year-old said: "I have nothing against England, apart from the weather, Manchester United is a possibility".

The France worldwide was linked to Manchester United in the off-season, but ended up staying at Atletico due to the club's transfer ban.

It was the as long as that resonated loudly with Spanish media who now claim that Griezmann's days at Atletico are numbered, with Barcelona and Manchester United appearing as biggest candidates to land him in 2018.

"I have no regrets about staying at Atletico".


Griezmann said the arrivals of Diego Costa and Vitolo in January would boost Diego Simeone's men.

Griezmann was booed off the pitch by Atletico fans when he substituted late on against Real Madrid, but the attacker insisted he has no regrets.

Antoine Griezmann has been Atletico Madrid's top scorer for the last three seasons but the French forward is now enduring a awful start to the new campaign.

"I'm happy with my choice, even if I've gone seven games without scoring".


"We played a good game against a very strong opponent".

What do you think the future holds for Griezmann? "Me leaving? I haven't spoken to the president about that".

Yet a divorce between player and club at the end of the season now seems inevitable, particularly with Atletico needing to balance the books should they crash out early in the Champions League.

Even victory over the Group C leaders and away to Chelsea in two weeks may not be enough to save Atletico unless Azerbaijani Champions League debutants Qarabag can also do them a favour by taking points off one of Chelsea or Roma in their final two games.
