Griezmann Says It Will Be “Dirty Move” To Leave Atletico Madrid For Manchester United - 4 years ago

Antoine Griezmann has confirmed he will stay at Atletico Madrid this summer, because it would be a “dirty move” to leave, after their transfer ban was upheld. Griezmann was reportedly Jose Mourinho’s number one target this summer, but a potential deal to Manchester United is now complicated, after the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) upheld a ban preventing the La Liga club from registering new players. United have now cooled their interest in the 26-year-old and the player has told French television show Telefoot on Sunday, that he appreciates it is now a “hard time” for Atletico. “The ruling of the CAS has come through. Atletico cannot recruit. With my sporting advisor, Eric Olhats, we decided to stay,” he said. “It’s a hard time for the club. It would be a dirty move to leave now. We talked to the leaders and we will be back for next season.”
