Atlético Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann has addressed the latest transfer rumours around him as Manchester United reportedly hold interest in the player.
With 12 goals and one assist, the Frenchman has been a key part of Atlético’s impressive start to the campaign and there has been noise around his future.
United have registered their interest in the experienced forward following reports that stated the Old Trafford club are looking for additions to aid 20-year-old Rasmus Hojlund, who is yet to score in the Premier League.
However, the likelihood of Griezmann making the move to England is extremely unlikely considering Los Colchoneros’ form this season and he has come out to reiterate his intention to stay at the Civitas Metropolitan Stadium and help win them the Spanish league.
Speaking to Marca, Griezmann said: “I’ve to earn myself to be a legend in this club. That’s my mission.
“By 2024 I want to bring joy to the fans and some title for Atlético. It would be a dream.”
The World Cup winner was once close to a move to United when Jose Mourinho was in charge but a deal never materialised.
Meanwhile, United will certainly be looking elsewhere for offensive reinforcements in the coming months as the January transfer window approaches.
