​Manchester United's primary transfer target Antoine Griezmann has played down a move to the Red Devils insisting he is happy at Atletico and the great weather in Madrid is 'a big help'.

It is believed that Manchester United are ready to exercise the Frenchman's £86m release clause this summer in move that will surely make United title challengers once more.


However speaking to ​beIN Sports and as reported by the ​Daily Mail, 25 year old Griezmann seems very content in Madrid and uninterested in a move anywhere, let alone to Manchester.

"As I have said so many times in the past, I have a contract with Atletico, I am happy here and so is my family.

''And besides, to leave, first the club has to want to sell me, right?"


When asked about his personal future the Frenchman added: "I try to be happy out on the pitch and give my best for the fans.

"Everything's going well. Here we have sun all the year round and that is also a big help."

The weather appears to be a big factor for Griezmann who has previously played down talk of a move to England due to the bad weather potentially affecting his personal life.

Club Atletico de Madrid v Sevilla FC - La Liga

Griezmann is having another fantastic season in front of goal for Atletico having scored 22 goals so far this season including a goal in Atletico's 3-1 success over Sevilla last night in La Liga.

Rather poetically the team who knocked Sevilla out of the Champions League this week, Leicester, will now face Griezmann's Atletico to determine who will progress to the Champions League semi finals in May.
