According to the Daily Mail, Antoine Griezmann’s brother Theo has thrown fuel on the transfer rumour fire regarding Manchester United.
Last summer Griezmann dropped his agent and handed his brother Theo the job of looking after his future.
The French forward has been heavily linked with a summer move to the Premier League, with some reports claiming he has agreed a deal in principle to join Manchester United.
Speaking on his future and possible destinations, the striker revealed he isn’t ready to return to France and also ruled out a move to Atletico’s La Liga rivals as well as the Premier League which would have been the only possible destination.
“I am asking myself where I could go,” the Atletico Madrid man told RMC.
“In Spain, there is Barcelona and Real Madrid.
“Barcelona have the three up top (Neymar, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez).
“Real Madrid, that is impossible because of the club I am at. I think that between them, there is a pact.
“Germany, the league does not attract me much. France, not for the moment.”
“England… I have a lot of doubts about my private life.
“Everything like rain, bad weather… I need to feel happy outside.”
Arsenal were expected to rival Manchester United for Grisman’s signature but his recent comment would come as bad news to both clubs.
Although he didn’t entirely rule out a move to England, he does suggest that it would take a lot of effort to convince him to leave Atletico. It remains to be seen whether Arsenal has the power to lure him to the Emirates.
