Griezmann wants Atletico Madrid stay

Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann insists he has no intentions of leaving the club amid reports linking him with a move to the Premier League.

The France international has been in sensational form and established himself as one of the best in Europe, having scored 36 times in 72 appearances for Los Colchoneros.

His form has naturally attracted interest from all across Europe, but Griezmann says he is happy in Madrid and is not looking for a move abroad.

"I do not feel the need to play in Ligue 1, nor in the Premier League or in Serie A," he told Canal Football Club. "I am in Spain – I'm happy. Life here, football, I like it all."

Atletico will face Benfica in the Champions League on Tuesday, looking to secure top spot in Group C with at least a draw.

"The game in Madrid was very difficult; they have great players in attack that can cause problems at any time," Griezmann added.

"We need to be combative and try to win to secure top spot in the group."
