Atletico Madrid star insists he is happy at the club


Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann has responded to rumours surrounding his future by insisting he is happy at the club.

Griezmann, 24, has been linked with a move to the Premier League, with Chelsea and Manchester United keen.

Indeed, reports this morning claimed that the Frenchman had even turned down a new contract with the Spanish club.

But Griezmann told Radio Monte Carlo: “[My career], in this moment, passes through trying to go as far as possible in the Champions League and winning the European Championship,” he said.

“I only think about that and I have no desire to leave Atletico.”

Griezmann has emerged as one of Diego Simeone’s most important players since arriving at Atletico from Real Sociedad, scoring 47 goals in 91 appearances.

Reports indicate that Atletico want to almost double Griezmann’s buyout clause, from £62m to £115m.
