Griezmann: United a possibility for me

Antoine Griezmann has revealed ‘Manchester United are a possibility” in a newly-released excerpt from his new autobiography.

The 26-year-old has been a long-term target of the Red Devils and was reportedly close to a move last summer before committing his short-term future to Atletico Madrid, under a player registration ban.

“Manchester United are a possibility for me,” a new excerpt of Griezmann’s autobiography reveals.

“I already have a strong relationship with Paul Pogba but he will not influence my decision and the truth is I don't know whether one day I will wear Manchester United's shirt.

“I have always worn number seven because David Beckham is my biggest idol.”

The Frenchman then revealed how he had turned down a number of clubs, had ‘waited and waited’ on Arsenal and wants to retire in MLS football.

“When Pep Guardiola was coaching Barcelona in 2011 I received an offer from them, but I decided to not to go,” he continues.

“Tottenham also was after me in 2014, and I turned down Paris Saint-Germain in 2015.

“Arsenal's scout Gilles Grimandi told me in 2013 that Wegner was very interested in me, so much so that I put aside all other offers. I waited, waited, and kept waiting, until finally no more news was coming. After a few telephone calls with Grimandi, he said that Wenger was still interested in me and so I continued waiting.

“At the end, a few hours before the transfer market closed, it was clear that Arsenal was not going to move forward, I didn't like hearing something that didn't happen after all.

“I would like to finish my career in MLS, at Beckham's team in Miami."
