Griezmann, his wife goes to clash


By: Manu Tournoux

Antoine Griezmann is announced in the sights of Manchester United for the winter transfer window but a departure from Atlético seems very improbable. His wife has already refused a move to the North West of England.

Living legend of Atlético, since he is now the co-top scorer in the history of the Madrid club with 172 goals (tied with Luis Aragonés), and even if he never won La Liga with the Colchoneros , Antoine Griezmann, 33 years old next March, should end his career there. He has a final opportunity to discover the great English Premier League, but there is little chance of seeing him leave, despite a release clause set at 25 million euros…

Manchester United would be interested in the 2018 world champion. Except that “Grizi” has already had the opportunity to join the club of his youth idol, David Beckham, and his wife categorically refused. “ We have to tell the story: he was very, very close to Manchester United, and that created problems in his relationship. He’s not going to save his relationship “, tells RMC Frédéric Hermel, the former correspondent of the radio and The Team in the Spanish capital and friends with the French international.

The vice-captain of the Blues has in any case no interest in joining the residents of Old Trafford during the winter transfer window, six months before Euro 2024, which is perhaps his last major competition as leader of the Blues. Griezmann already knows that his partner, the Basque Erika Choperena, has no plans to raise their three children in the North West of England. The 32-year-old left-hander will be content to be the star player for Diego Simeone’s Atlético.
