The France international winger has been
linked with a move away from Vicente
Calderon but it seems the Liga club have
absolutely no intention of letting him leave
Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo
says there is no chance of star forward
Antoine Griezmann joining Real Madrid or
Manchester United.
The France international has seen his
name linked with a number of major sides
across Europe in recent months given his
sparkling form for club and country.
Griezmann drops BIG Man Utd move hint
Rumours of a move to Old Trafford have
emerged, with the player himself admitting
he would relish the chance to play
alongside compatriot Paul Pogba, while
European champions Madrid have also
been linked with a shock bid.
Cerezo, however, intends to rebuff any and
all offers for the 25-year-old.
“I don’t believe there is any possibility of
Griezmann going to Madrid, or to any other
team,” he told Onda Cero . “There is a
fantastic relationship with Real Madrid, a
respect as people and as neighbours.”
Atletico face Madrid on Saturday for the
first time since they lost the Champions
League final on penalties at San Siro in
May.
The home side know that a defeat at
Vicente Calderon will see them slip nine
points behind their city rivals in the table
after only 12 games, leaving hopes of a
Liga title challenge looking slim.
Cerezo claims it is tough to compete with
Madrid and Barcelona given their financial
superiority but says Diego Simeone and
his players are determined to enjoy a
successful season.
“We’re going to try to have a better season
than last year,” he said. “La Liga is a very
long competition, luck plays a part in the
Champions League, and the Copa is a
trophy that everyone wants and we’ll fight
for it.
