Antoine Griezmann Confirms Atletico Madrid Stay

Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann has admitted that he won't be leaving his club this summer.
The 26-year-old forward had been linked with a move to Manchester United, before their interest in him cooled.

Atletico's appeal against a transfer ban for breaching FIFA rules over the signing of minors was rejected by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

And Griezmann expressed his support for Atletico shortly after it was confirmed that they will not be able to make any new signings until 2018.
Last week Griezmann, who had said this week he was happy at Atletico and that his future will be decided soon, posted a message on his social media accounts reading: "Now more than ever #Atleti #Alltogether"

And on Sunday, Griezmann, who has a release clause in his contract set at €100 million (£87m), confirmed to Telefoot that he would be staying this summer.
"We have decided to stay [Griezmann and his sporting adviser Eric Olhats]," he said.
"[The constant speculation and questions about his future] was pretty irritating.
"It is a difficult moment for the club and for my teammates. It would have been a really harsh blow [for Atletico] to leave. There is another beautiful season to be had."
Asked about France teammate Lacazette, he added: "Yes it is a shame for him, because he would have come. In December, we will be knocking on the door again."
