Antoine Griezmann finally speaks out amid reports he has offers from Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United


Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann has confirmed that he received offers this summer but rejected all of them because he wants to stay in Spain.

The Frenchman was a target for Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United according to reports in England.

But he says his objective is to work under Diego Pablo Simeone and win trophies at the Vicente Calderon Stadium.

"Offers? I have always been very clear, I have no intentions of leaving Atletico, Cholo [Simeone] and my team-mates," he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"Yes some calls arrived but I didn't listen to them.

"I have no doubts: I have the will and desire to win something with Atletico.

"[Paul Pogba?] I speak to him often these days, we're close friends.

"It's a shame for Juventus because they lost a great player, but I'm very happy for Paul.

"Manchester United spent €105million to buy him back? Football is like this.

"What is certain is in these years Paul improved dramatically at Juventus."
