Griezmann Commits to Atletico Madrid After Transfer Ban
Man Utd move off? Griezmann commits to Atletico Madrid after transfer ban
Antoine Griezmann has pledged his loyalty to Atletico Madrid after their transfer ban was upheld, appearing to rule out a summer move to Manchester United in the process.
United have been heavily linked with the Frenchman but Atletico’s inability to sign a replacement because of their ban has dealt a severe blow to the Red Devils’ hopes of sealing his signing.
And Griezmann appears to have now poured cold water on the potential switch by tweeting “Now more than ever, Atleti” hours after the Spanish club’s appeal against the punishment was rejected.
His commitment to Atletico will come as a huge boost for Diego Simeone, with Kevin Gameiro his side’s second top scorer this past campaign with 16 in all competitions and Fernando Torres out of contract.
