Antoine Griezmann will consider offers from Manchester United and Real Madrid but remains open to staying with Atletico Madrid next season.The France superstar has been regularly linked with a move to Old Trafford, while a shock move across the city to Los Blancos has also been mooted.
Griezmann scored his 100th LaLiga goal in Atleti’s 1-0 win over Espanyol on Saturday, while Diego Simeone’s men also have a Champions League semi-final against their city rivals on the horizon.
But it remains to be seen if Griezmann, who has a €100million release clause in his contract, will be with the club next season and his advisor Eric Olhats says several avenues are being explored.
“There is an existing clause of €100million which is unavoidable,” he told Telefoot. “We’re thinking right now about the most suitable offer. Real Madrid and other clubs are part of this thinking process.
“Antoine doesn’t want to leave the club at any cost. That is false. We are going to observe.“There is Manchester United, they told us about their project. They were the first and the most solid in their enquiry.”
However, Olhats says that there has been no contact with Paris Saint-Germain and does not foresee Griezmann moving to the Ligue 1 champions.“No, no contact with PSG,” he added. “Last year, there was a real interest. Not this year. He might not be in their plans anymore.”
