Antoine Griezmann admits he could join Manchester United in shock admission

Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann has admitted joining Manchester United is a ‘possibility’.

The Frenchman was keen on a move to Old Trafford last summer and rated his chances of joining the Red Devils as a ‘six out of ten’.

However, the 26-year-old opted to stay with Diego Simeone’s side after a UEFA ban against the club prevented them from signing a replacement.

United, though, remain interested and Griezmann has admitted there’s a chance he will finally make the move.

‘In June, I extended my contract. I’m linked to the club until 2022. Although, I might be missing out on titles, I have everything here to be happy but that does not mean to say I won’t go one day,’ Griezmann writes in a new biography.

‘I haven’t made that decision. It all depends on various factors.

“I have nothing against England except for the weather. Manchester United is a possibility.’

United turned to Romelu Lukaku after it became apparent that Griezmann would not leave Atletico Madrid last summer.

The Belgian’s made a bright start to life at Old Trafford but Mourinho is known to be on the lookout for a creative playmaker and Griezmann fits the bill.
