Antoine Griezmann TEAMtalk

Antoine Griezmann says he will be patient as he looks move away from Atletico Madrid this summer.

The France striker, who has a €120million release clause, has been on the radar of Manchester United for the last few years and it seemed a move to Old Trafford was on the cards early last summer.

A move never materialised though and Griezmann ended up signing a new deal with Atletico only to recently release a vlog stating his intention to finally leave Madrid this summer and seek a new “challenge”.

He had seemed destined to move to Barcelona this summer, but that trail seems to have gone cold with  The Independent claiming the Barcelona hierarchy believe the money required to land Griezmann would be better spent elsewhere.

Meanwhile, United have re-opened communications with the player, claim Mundo Deportivo, and the player was asked about his future following France’s 4-0 win over Andorra.

“There’s a need for patience, as it’s still soon. I want my future to be decided more than anyone, but there’s a need to wait,” said Griezmann.

“I don’t know if I’ll remain in Spain. Maybe in two weeks we’ll know something. I just want to play football and have fun.”
