United fans may have to wait longer than past the Summer for reported target Antoine Griezmann to make his way to Old Trafford.
Recent quotes from the Atletico Madrid forward who’s been linked with a move to United, suggest the France international has no intention of leaving the Spanish outfit- at least not while Diego Simeone is in charge.
Antoine Griezmann told French TV station Telefoot: “The only doubt would be if Simeone leaves for PSG or wherever.
“I called him before extending my contract and he confirmed to me that he was staying.
Although Griezmann’s comments show the striker has loyalty to a manager who’s now twice come close to delivering the Champions League, only to see his derby rivals beat them in the final. Simeone doesn’t appear to be going anywhere soon, certainly not this Summer after signing a five year deal in 2015. The Argentinean is immensely popular with his club, including his players, although as we’ve seen with the likes of Diego Costa, Atletico’s stars can be tempted to leave, although Griezmann seems to be made of more loyal stuff than some of his predecessors.
