Griezmann holds talks with team-mates and Simeone – and leaves future in hands of Atletico president

Date Posted,May 30, 2017

Antoine Griezmann has held talks with his team-mates and manager Diego Simeone over his future with Atletico Madrid and will leave talk of a big money move to Manchester United in the hands of president Enrique Cerezo.

Griezmann continues to be linked with a big money transfer to Old Trafford with reports suggesting United are ready to activate the £87million release clause in his contract.

The French striker has been one of the star performers for Atletico Madrid in recent years scoring 83 goals in just 160 appearances and the Spanish club are determined to keep their star forward.

But with United back in the Champions League next season, Jose Mourinho is in the market for a big name striker and Griezmann could be the answer to their goalscoring problems.

The prolific forward is currently with the France squad as they prepare for two games against Paraguay and Sweden, but was questioned once again about his long-term future.

Griezmann says he is happy to stay at Atletico Madrid and has spoken with Madrid team-mates Koke and Diego Godin, but has left his future in the hands of the club president.

Griezmann said: “I am happy here. I have spoken with the manager, with Koke and Godin. It is in the hands of the president of the club. We will see how it goes.

“I am good at the club. My agents are talking with Atletico and we will see what happens. My future will be decided this summer. If I do leave this summer, the date will depend on the qualifying phase of the World Cup.”
