Chelsea and Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern for the Saturday football have been united in their disappointment this afternoon, as they sigh and shake their heads due to an emerging transfer story.
Talksport, citing RMC, quote Atletico Madrid ace Antoine Griezmann as ruling out a summer exit from the club, amid intense speculation linking the French international with a lucrative move to the Premier League.
Whilst a number of top sides have been linked with the former Real Sociedad star, Griezmann himself has his focus on his current club and the upcoming European Championships, as he ruled out a move with his recent comments.
“For the moment, in terms of my career plan, it is to try to go as far as possible in the Champions League and to win the Euros. I am only thinking about that and I do not want to leave [Atletico].”
Our landlord is a huge fan of the French forward and he’s gutted by the mood, as he’d love to see Griezmann in the Premier League.
Is Griezmann making the right call by staying with Atletico? Let us know in the comments below!
