Some of Europe’s biggest clubs are interested in the France international, but while he is flattered he will stay put for the time being
Antoine Griezmann would be open to joining Real Madrid, Barcelona or Bayern Munich at some stage in his career, but the attacker is adamant he has no intention of leaving Atletico Madrid just yet.
The France international is regularly linked with a potential move away from Atletico, and Manchester United are believed to be among the leading candidates to secure his services.
A move to Old Trafford is seemingly not at the top of Griezmann’s wishlist, though, as he suggested other heavyweight clubs, including two LaLiga rivals, could be more attractive if he were to leave Atleti.
The German midfielder is poised to link up with the MLS side next week after departing Old Trafford in a designated player deal
Bastian Schweinsteiger is leaving Manchester United to join Chicago Fire.
Both clubs have confirmed the news, with the veteran German expected to link up with Veljko Paunovic’s side next week after signing a designated player contract that guarantees him $4.5 million in 2017, according to the Chicago Tribune.
“Throughout my career, I’ve always sought opportunities where I hoped to make a positive impact and to help make something great,” Schweinsteiger said in a statement released to the Tribune.
“My move to Chicago Fire is no different. Through my conversations with [general manager Nelson Rodriguez] and Pauno, I’m convinced by the club’s vision and philosophy and I want to help them with this project.”
