Griezmann hints at Atleti stay

Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann says he is happy in the Spanish capital, hinting that he is not a certainty to leave the club this summer.

The 26-year-old France international has been heavily linked with a big-money move to England this summer, but Griezmann insists he is content where he is and could stay put even if head coach Diego Simeone leaves Atleti.

I want titles, it's what I want and what I lack.

He told Cadena Ser: "Yes, I am very comfortable here and now. I continue at Atletico because I am happy. If I am happy in my personal life, I will be happy in my profession.

"I want titles, it's what I want and what I lack. Not individual titles, but titles with the team.

"We want to improve and we are doing it with Simeone and the rest of my team-mates. My future is not linked to him. I don't think that if he leaves, I will go."

Atleti round off their La Liga campaign with a visit from Athletic Bilbao, a match which will be the last to be played at the Vicente Calderon, before the Rojiblancos move to the Wanda Metropolitano for next season.

Atletico are 11/10 to mark their departure with a win and are 9/1 to secure a 2-0 victory, with Griezmann available at 7/2 to score the final goal of the game.

Meanwhile, Griezmann's compatriot and fellow frontman, Alexandre Lacazette, says he would welcome a move to Atletico from Lyon this summer.

He told reporters: "Yes, I like them. They've got great players, a great manager and a good fanbase and Antoine is there.

"We'll see what happens at the end of the season and I'll think about it then."
