Antoine Griezmann growing fed up of transfer talk


In-demand Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann says he is growing frustrated by the continued discussion surrounding his playing future.

The Frenchman has been hotly linked with a big-money move to the Premier League and in particular Manchester United, who could be set to break their own transfer record on the player.

United smashed that barrier with the €105 million signing of Griezmann’s French counterpart Paul Pogba from Juventus in the summer.

The 25-year-old reiterated he is happy in Madrid, still with four years of his contract to play out.

“It’s always the same question and I now don’t know what to say,” he is quoted as saying by AS.

“I find myself repeating myself and I certainly see myself here (at Atletico).

“I feel it’s an answer that I’ve given so many times now but that very question is quite tiring.”

Ultimately, former France international Youri Djorkaeff says, Griezmann’s fate is in his own hands.

“You know, this decision belongs to the player, but it’s all about what you are offered,” he said.

“People think that Atletico Madrid is inferior to all the other (big clubs). However Atletico Madrid played two of the last three Champions League finals.

“They won the Spanish League, Copa del Rey. They have won a lot of trophies, they have played a lot of finals as well.

“They just miss out maybe on the Champions League. However, there are only a few clubs in the last few years who have reached the final.”
