Guillem Balague has insisted that Atletico Madrid are confident that Antoine Griezmann will ignore the reported interest from Manchester United and remain in Spain next season.

The France attacker has been relentlessly touted as a possible target for the Red Devils in recent months as the summer transfer window draws ever nearer.

Jose Mourinho is believed to be on the lookout for attacking reinforcements at Old Trafford as he prepares for his second season in charge at the club.

Griezmann himself has remained coy whenever quizzed about his future beyond the summer transfer window.

And Spanish football expert Balague has appeared to have poured cold water on the chances of Griezmann moving to Manchester United by insisting that Atletico are fully expecting the striker to stay at the club this summer.

Balague told Sky Sports: “We will see what happens with that. Atletico feel Griezmann will stay.

“Alexandre Lacazette is wanted but Atletico still do not know if they can sign players this summer because of the ban.”
