Premier League target has “no reason” to leave current club


Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann says he has “no reason” to leave the club this summer despite reports continuing to link him with a move to Manchester United.

Despite being contracted to the Spanish club until the end of the 2020-21 season, rumours of a move away from Atletico refuse to go away and the French international admitted he is growing tired of being asked about a potential transfer again and again.

“I am always asked the same question and I am pretty sick of it, but like I always say, I am very happy here,” he told Spain’s TVE Telediario de La1. “I have learned a lot over time, I have the best teammates and a top coach. So I am doing very well here and there is no reason to go.”

Manager Diego Simeone has also been linked with a move away from the club in the near future, but Griezmann is confident of the Argentine remaining in the Spanish capital.

“He likes it here, he sees in us a squad that has more to give and he does as well,” he said. “He wants to go very far in Champions and La Liga and soon we will have a new stadium. I am sure he will continue with us.”
