Transfer speculation is never far away where Antoine Griezmann is concerned. Following France’s 1-0 win over Holland in World Cup qualifying on Monday night he was asked once again by the press about rumours linking him to a move to PSG.
PSG aren't part of my plans for now, says Griezmann
“Nobody knows what can happen in the future but for now PSG aren’t part of my plans,” he told France 3. “Maybe someday, but right now Atlético Madrid is my team. I’m focused on doing well here and I want to win titles with the club.”
It’s not the first time that Griezmann, who leads the LaLiga goal scoring table with 6 goals in 7 games, has been forced to comment on PSG’s long-standing interest.
“I know that they’re very interested,” he said last month. “It’s a big club that wants to get better and better but I told my agent that I didn’t want to know. I was only focused on the national side, and I wanted to isolate myself from everything, from Atlético, from PSG and any possible interest in me. My head was just focused on the European Championships.”
Griezmann's future tied to that of Simeone
His future, however, remains intrinsically tied to that of coach Diego Simeone, something he’s never tried to hide.
“I’m happy in Spain and I can still learn so much from Simeone. I’d only have doubts if he were to leave,” he said in September, not long after signing a new deal at Atleti increasing his buy-out clause to €100 million.
