Man Utd, Chelsea warned against paying over odds for Griezmann: He's no Ronaldo

Former Real Madrid GM Jorge Valdano has warned interested clubs against paying over the odds for Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann.

Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea have all been linked to €100 million offers for the star Frenchman.

But World Cup winner Valdano isn't so sure.

He told Onda Cero: "Antoine Griezmann will not reach the level of Cristiano Ronaldo or (Lionel) Messi.

"Griezmann can pick up the legacy of Cristiano Ronaldo or Messi when they are tired and time has passed, but he will not reach their level. We talk about players of 50 or 60 goals a season."
