Griezmann doubts over England move

Antoine Griezmann has admitted he will consider a move away from Atletico Madrid at the end of the season, but has reservations about a move to England.

The French forward has been heavily linked with a move to English giants Manchester United but confessed the weather and doubts about his private life would make him reconsider.

"With Real Sociedad, I felt that I needed to leave. For the moment, I do not know where that desire came from," Griezmann told RMC.

"Who knows how the season will finish. If it finishes badly, maybe I will ask myself the question. For the moment, it is not relevant…

"Aside from that, I am asking myself where I could go. In Spain, there is Barcelona and Real Madrid.

"Barcelona have the three up top. Real Madrid, that is impossible because of the club I am at [Real's fierce Madrid rivals Atletico]. I think that between them, there is a pact [not to sell players between them].

"Germany, the league does not attract me much. France, not for the moment.

"And England, I have a lot of doubts about my private life. Everything like rain, bad weather… I need to feel happy outside."

The 25-year-old was then asked which league he thought was the best, and whilst he praised the ‘intensity’ of the Premier League, he prefers La Liga.

"I like the teams who bring intensity like in England," he added.

"Yes, I watch the English league. The referees let the game flow, the stadiums are always full. But if I have to choose one league, it is the Spanish league, because it corresponds the best with my game."
