Antoine Griezmann replies to transfer question amid Man United and Chelsea links

Antoine Griezmann was not happy about being questions about his future at Atletico Madrid...

Antoine Griezmann reacted angrily to being questioned about his future at Atletico Madrid following the recent speculation linking the France international with a transfer to the Premier League.

Manchester United have been linked with a move for the Atletico star as Jose Mourinho considers his transfer plans for January and the summer.

Chelsea have also been touted as a possible Premier League destination for Griezmann should he leave Atletico Madrid.

However, the player himself has moved to play down talk of him leaving the Spanish club any time soon and has indicated that he is indeed happy at Atletico.

Asked about whether he could leave Atletico, Griezmann told Spanish newspaper AS: “I do not like these kind of questions about my future because players like Cristiano, Messi or Bale are not asked about what is going to happen next year and where they will be or where they will play.

“That’s why I do not like to be asked either. I am happy and enjoying life at Atletico, do not ask me more about my future.

“I am very happy at Atletico, I am proud to play for these fans, with these team-mates, with this coach.

“I want to try to give back the trust and affection that has always been shown to me by the people of Atletico. I want to score goals and entertain people.”

Griezmann was one of France’s standout performers last summer as they reached the final of Euro 2016 on home soil.
