Griezmann Makes Big Man Utd Admission

Atletico Madrid superstar Antoine Griezmann, who is believed to have snubbed Manchester United in the previous transfer window, has now hinted at a U-turn on that decision.

The 26-year-old has struggled for form this season, having scored just three goals for the Rojiblancos in all competitions so far.

He was rumoured to be close to joining United in August, but confirmation of Atletico's transfer ban ended speculation and saw him extend his deal in Madrid.

However, Griezmann, who has since also been linked with a move to FC Barcelona, has now admitted that joining United "is a possibility".

"In June, I extended my contract. I'm linked to the club until 2022," he explained in his new biography Behind the Smile, as quoted by AS.

"Although I might be missing out on titles, I have everything here to be happy but that does not mean to say I won't go one day. I haven't made that decision. It all depends on various factors.

"I have nothing against England, except for the weather. Manchester United is a possibility."

Despite this public admission, Griezmann said in a recent FourFourTwo interview that he will not leave Diego Simeone’s side in January.
