‘United Move Possible’- Antoine Griezmann
23 May 2017 Sport
Antoine Griezmann has marked his chances of joining Manchester United this summer as six out of 10 and says his future will be decided in the next two weeks.
United are interested in signing the Atletico Madrid forward, according to Griezmann’s adviser, but the 26-year-old had so far not made his intentions about a move away from the Vicente Calderon clear.
Atletico manager Diego Simeone has admitted Griezmann could leave the club, and the France international has now himself admitted a transfer to Manchester United could happen.
Asked about United on French television programme Quotidien, Griezmann said: “Possible, possible.”
He was then questioned about the chances of him joining United on a scale of one to 10, and he said “Six.”
Pressed on the matter further, the TV show host asked Griezmann – who has 26 goals across all competitions for Atletico this season – to confirm he understood what he was saying, to which Griezmann replied “yes”.
Griezmann added: “I should know more in the next two weeks.”
He also rated his chances of staying at Atletico as a “seven,” while saying it would be “impossible” to play under Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid.
Former Manchester United midfielder David Beckham was one of Griezmann’s idols while growing up, but the Atletico striker insists he is focused on his own journey – whether at Old Trafford or not.
“I don’t want to follow Beckham’s path but I have my own,” said Griezmann.
