Atletico Madrid frontman Antoine Griezmann claims there are a number of factors which will decide his future at the end of the season.

Over the past few months, an extensive campaign from British media almost stitched Griezmann’s fate with the Red Devils but the Frenchman recently poured cold water on the speculation he insisted he was happy in the Spanish capital.

Jose Mourinho spent almost £150 million during his first summer at Old Trafford and he will be given a hefty fund to reinvest again this summer. With Wayne Rooney on the brink of exit and Zlatan Ibrahimovic turning 36 later this year, landing a top-class goalscorer is the Red Devils’ main prerogative.

However, a failure to secure the Champions League qualification would certainly impact United’s pulling power and Griezmann is thought to be waiting to see if Manchester United make the top four before taking the final call.

The 25-year-old Atletico marksman has a £85million release clause in his contract but he’s now suggested the Manchester giants are yet to make an offer and admitted there are plenty of elements to consider before he makes his decision.

He has shown his intent to continue making history in Spanish football and it seems he doesn’t like the weather in England.

“I have a contract. There has to be an offer,” Griezmann told BeIN.

“The club has to want to sell me. I have to want to leave. Lots of factors. As I have said, I feel good here, my family is comfortable, which is the most important thing.

“There is sun here the entire year too, which also helps. I am trying to enjoy myself on the pitch.”
