Griezmann Says it would be Possible a Transfer to Real Madrid


Antoine Griezmann is one of the best players in the world as he showed last year, helping Atlético de Madrid to qualify for the Champions League final and France to the Euro final. For these achievements, Griezmann was nominated to the Golden Ball and The Best awards this years.

Most of the biggest clubs in Europe are trying to sign Griezmann, but the French striker is very comfortable in Madrid and he’s happy with his club. Especially, the rumours linked the Atlético star with Manchester United, that should be ready to pay around €80M or €90M for the striker.

However, the Atlético star left the door opened to a possible transfer to Real Madrid or FC Barcelona: “Why not? It’s everybody’s dream, being in the biggest clubs like those or Bayern… but right now I don’t see myself neither at Barcelona nor Real Madrid… not even anywhere else. I’m fine in Spain”.

The forward spoke in an interview with the French newspaper L’Equipe and he was asked about a possible transfer to PSG: “I don’t have any intention to leave Atlético, not to Paris, China, United States, Russia or anywhere else”, Griezmann said firmly. So it looks like all the big teams will have to wait until Simeone’s project is over.

Griezmann has also spoken about the most difficult players to play against to: “The Real Madrid pair of full backs: Ramos and Pepe”.

Atlético Madrid striker numbers show that he’s very happy with his team. In his first two seasons with Simeone’s club, Griezmann scored 22 goals in La Liga. This year, so far he’s scored 14 goals. Besides, he has also found the net in crucial games in Europe, like last year’s semifinals against Bayern Munich. Unfortunately for him, he missed a penalty in the Champions League final at San Siro, helping Real Madrid to win the 11th Champions League trophy.
