Griezmann: Every player dreams of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern

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.

“Could I play for Real Madrid or Barcelona in the future? Why not,” Griezmann was quoted as saying by Marca.

“It is every player’s dream to play for a big club like those two or for Bayern Munich.

“But I cannot see myself at Barca or Madrid at this stage, nor at any other club. I am happy where I am now.

“I have no intention of leaving Atletico, not for Paris Saint-Germain, not for China, not for MLS, not for Russia and not for any other destination.”

The attacker, who turns 26 on Tuesday, opted to stay at Atleti last year after holding talks with Diego Simeone, but he has made it clear his situation is not necessarily tied to that of the coach.

“My future does not depend on Simeone. He could leave one day or I could leave,” Griezmann added.

“I called him ahead of this season to find out what his plans were, he told me he would stay and that felt good, so I also stayed.

“But we are not inseparable.”
