France international Antoine Griezmann has reiterated his intention to remain at Atletico Madrid despite the ongoing transfer link with Manchester United.

The 25-year-old has been continuously associated with a move to Old Trafford with the Red Devils willing to trigger his £86m release clause.

However, Griezmann insists that he is content with life in the Spanish capital where the weather is sunny throughout the year unlike in Manchester.

"As I have said so many times in the past, I have a contract with Atletico, I am happy here and so is my family. And besides, to leave, first the club has to want to sell me, right?" he told beIN Sports.

"I try to be happy out on the pitch and give my best for the fans. Everything's going well. Here we have sun all the year round and that is also a big help."

The former Real Sociedad man has netted 21 goals in 39 outings across all competitions for Atletico Madrid this campaign.
