Atletico Madrid superstar Antoine Griezmann, who is a reported target for Manchester United, has explained why he would never join Arsenal.
The French international has been linked with an exit at the end of the season, with Jose Mourinho's Red Devils reportedly keen on the player.
Griezmann has now revealed the Gunners were interested in his services in 2013 but they took to long to make an offer.
The forward reveals due to the delay, he would never join the North London outfit, who did approached him again.
"I waited, I waited, and I kept waiting… when there was no news, Eric called Grimandi, who said that the manager was still interested in me [and] to keep waiting," Griezmann wrote in his autobiography.
"Finally a few hours before the market closed, he let us know Arsenal would not make a move. I don't like to be told something and for it not to happen.
"So when Eric told me later that the London club were interested again I told him: 'Forget it, after the blow they gave us'."
