There are two rumours making the circles regarding Antoine Griezmann, but talking to Telefoot he rejected both. First, he was asked if he has any regrets about staying at Atletico Madrid, while he was given the opportunity to move to England, and join Manchester United.
I don’t regret staying. It was my choice. I’m happy with my choice, even if I’ve gone seven games without scoring. It will come back
the 26-year-old said. It was indeed his choice, he wasn’t forced by Atletico to stay, it was he who took the initiative to terminate any talk about leaving the day it was announced – for good – that the Madrid club wouldn’t be allowed to make any transfers last summer.
The other rumour is about the future. In January, both Diego Costa and Vitolo will be available to play for the Rojiblancos. Would Griezmann feel less… morally obliged to stay? Could he push for a winter transfer?
No. Diego Costa and Vitolo will be coming so we will try to keep the team high enough. These two reinforcements will do us good. I did not discuss with the president anything that has to do with a transfer of mine
the France international said, looking eager to help Atletico… save the season in its second half.
