Man Utd target Griezmann says move depends on Atletico ban

Antoine Griezmann has admitted his move to Manchester United hinges on the uplifting of Atletico's transfer ban.

Los Rojiblancos are currently appealing a Court of Arbitration ban that will not allow them to purchase players this summer.

If Atletico are unable to replace the Frenchman – they have agreed verbally with Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette – then Griezmann may find himself at the Vicente Calderon for one more season, which is a situation that he is well aware of.

"The club will see what to do, it will depend on the transfer [situation]," Griezmann said at the launch of his autobiography, 'Behind the Smile'.

"I do not know if they understand, but all the players, you the media, my family, know that I love football to win trophies. I want to taste this."
