United target Griezmann: I´d only leave Atletico to play for Knicks

Antoine Griezmann says he would only leave Atletico Madrid to play alongside Derrick Rose at the New York Knicks.

Griezmann has been widely tipped to join Manchester United in the Premier League, something repeatedly denied by the France international.

However, Griezmann did hint at a move away from Madrid but to a team in the NBA.

“I would only leave Atleti to play with Derrick Rose,” the 26-year-old jokingly told Cadena Ser’s El Larguero.

It has been another fine season for Griezmann, scoring 16 LaLiga goals and 26 in all competitions.

But his goals have not been enough to deliver a trophy to Atletico, who will finish third in LaLiga this term, having lost in the semi-finals of the Champions League and Copy del Rey.

And if Griezmann is to remain in the Spanish capital, he wants to win silverware.

“I am very comfortable here and now have to meet my representative with Miguel Angel Gil Marin and see what happens,” he said.

“I am happy. If I am happy in my personal life I will be happy in the profession. I love [coach Diego] Simeone and I love my mates. I’m still as happy as the first day I introduced myself. I wish I could continue to enjoy my private and sports life.

“I want titles, it’s what I want and what I lack. I give everything in Atletico for that.”
