Antoine Griezmann's future has long been a talking point amongst fans and the media alike.

Ever since Euro 2016, where he scored six goals and led France to the final, the 25-year-old has been linked with moves to Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United.

Even Chelsea are said to be interested in signing Atletico Madrid's prized asset, so much so that they're plotting a world-record move next summer.

Despite such persistant rumours, Griezmann has held firm and rejected the idea of leaving the Spanish capital, especially while manager Diego Simeone remains.

And the striker once again maintained that stance in a recent interview with French radio station France 3, but he did reveal the one club he could potentially join "someday".

He said, per Sky Sports: "You never know what will happen in the future but for the moment, PSG are not in my plans.

"Maybe someday but right now, Atletico Madrid is my team.

"I concentrate on Atletico Madrid, I am well at my team and my desire is to win something important at my club."

A second La Liga title in three years could well be in the offing for Griezmann and co. at the Vicente Calderon, with Los Rojiblancos top of the table after seven games.

A poor start saw Atletico draw against Alaves and Leganes in their opening two games, but they've since secured 13 points out of a possible 15.

Griezmann has played an major role in that run, too, scoring six goals so far and topping the La Liga goalscoring charts, one ahead of Barcelona's Luis Suarez.

It's this kind of form that Simeone hopes will see Griezmann fulfil his vast potential in the near future, with the 46-year-old determined to stay at Atletico and help his star striker.

In the build up to September 28's win over Bayern Munich in the Champions League, he said: "I don't feel like Griezmann's mentor, I'm just his coach who helps him as a footballer and as a person.

"We're helping an extraordinary footballer reach his full potential and I'm just like any other in achieving that."
