The likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney left Europe for the US, and have taken the league by storm this season.

Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann has now revealed that he'd like to end his career in America too.

"I want to play in MLS, I'd like to finish my career there," the Frenchman said in an interview with ESPN FC.

"They have a different mindset, I love the NBA and the show business aspect of it. I also love American football, and I love (the country) because no one (recognises) me when I'm there."

The Frenchman also spoke about the infamous "The Decision" video, during which he revealed his decision to stay at Atletico this season.

When asked if he had copied NBA superstar Lebron James, who did something similar in 2009, he replied: "Not because he did it, (but because) I wanted to do it as well," Griezmann added in the interview.

"I saw what he did because I like to know how things are made, how decisions are made and how they go through that process."
