Antoine Griezmann has reportedly expressed doubts about his much speculated move to the Manchester United.
Even though the striker did admit he will think about his future at the end of the season, he was unsure if the country would suit his private life.
Speaking to RMC, Griezmann admitted he might think about his future at Atletico Madrid. “With Real Sociedad, I felt that I needed to leave. For the moment, I do not know where that desire came from.
“Who knows how the season will finish. If it finishes badly, maybe I will ask myself the question. For the moment, it is not relevant,” Griezmann added.

The Frenchman has been linked with numerous top clubs after a splendid 15-16 season. He reached the finals of the Champions League and the Euros, finishing top scorer in the latter. The longest and strongest running link has been with Manchester United, ever since Mourinho took over Old Trafford.
But with this latest interview, Griezman has dampened the hopes of Premier League fans. “England, I have a lot of doubts about my private life. Everything like rain, bad weather… I need to feel happy outside,” he said.
The 25-year old went on to talk about further prospects in other countries.
“Barcelona have the three [Neymar, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez] up top. Real Madrid, that is impossible because of the club I am at [Real’s fierce Madrid rivals Atletico]. I think that between them, there is a pact [not to sell players between them].
“Germany, the league does not attract me much. France, not for the moment,” RMC reported him as saying.
Griezmann did add that he enjoyed watching the Premier League, even if the La Liga suited his game better.
“I like the teams who bring intensity like in England,” he said. “Yes, I watch the English league. The referees let the game flow, the stadiums are always full. But if I have to choose one league, it is the Spanish league, because it corresponds the best with my game.”
