Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone has admitted that Antoine Griezmann could leave the club. 

As reported by the Mirror, the Argentinian coach has insisted that Atletico can't hold Griezmann at the club 'with chains'.

The 24-year-old forward has once again been in fine form this season, scoring 12 goals in 21 appearances in La Liga.

But it's far from certain as to whether he will remain in Spain's elite division for the long-term, with Simeone now admitting that it won't be easy to keep hold of his star man. 

When discussing the forward's future, the Atletico boss stated: “The sporting directors have been speaking to him directly, with those close to him, in order to work out what’s best for him and the club.

“Of course he’s a very important player for us, but we can’t hold him here with chains.”


Unsurprisingly, there is a great deal of interest in the services of the attacker. The same report from the Mirror claims that both Manchester United and Manchester City are looking at Griezmann while Chelsea are also tracking him. 

But the Mirror also claim that the European duo of Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are ready to battle the aforementioned Premier League clubs for the red-hot striker. 

It's far from certain as to whether any of the clubs will make their move in this transfer window or whether the battle will commence in the summer transfer window. 

Fans of Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea will all be hoping to see Griezmann arrive in the near future, so it looks set to be an interesting period for all involved.
