Griezmann indicates he would not be interested in Chelsea or Man Utd move

Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann has played down speculation linking him with a move to the Premier League, suggesting he is not interested in playing in England.

Chelsea have been linked with the France international during successive transfer windows and have again been tipped to move for him in the summer.

Manchester United are also said to be keen to sign him, but Griezmann told French radio station RMC he would prefer to stay in Spain and that a move to England would not appeal.

He said: “In Spain, Barcelona have Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez, and a move to Real Madrid would be impossible because I play for Atletico.

“Germany is not a league that appeals to me. France, not right now. As for England, I do watch the Premier League but I have doubts about the lifestyle. Rain, bad weather; I need to be happy off the pitch.

“I like the style of play in England and that the referees let the game flow and the grounds are always full, but the Spanish league is better suited to my style of play.”
