Griezmann shuns Man United in favor of Atletico return

Two Premier League superstars, Diego Costa and Alexis Sanchez, could move on from their respective clubs as the Premier League transfer window gets underway.

For a while there it seemed like a move to England was a sure thing for Antoine Griezmann, but those plans haven’t taken such shape.

The French striker has reportedly turned down Jose Mourinho and Manchester United in favor of remaining with Atletico Madrid, where the 26-year-old has spent his time since 2014.

The Independent has also reported that Griezmann personally placed a phone call to Mourinho on Thursday to notify the Portuguese boss that he wouldn’t be making the journey to Old Trafford ahead of the 2017/18 season.

Griezmann has scored 83 goals for Atletico in his three seasons with the side from the Spanish capital, amassing at least 25 goals per season during that time.
