Manchester United transfer target Antione Griezmann has been given a warning about making a potential move to Old Trafford by former French international Youri Djorkaeff.
Djorkaeff urged Griezmann to consider the success he has achieved playing for Atletico before making a move to a different ‘big club’.
In an interview with Omnisport, Djorkaeff stated: ‘You know, this decision belongs to the player but it’s all about what you are offered.’
‘People think that Atletico is inferior to all the other big clubs. However Atletico Madrid played two of the three last Champions League finals, they won the Spanish league and Copa del Rey.’
‘They have won a lot of trophies, they have played a lot of finals as well. They just miss out maybe on the Champions League.’
‘However, there are only a few clubs in the last few years who have reached the final.’
The opportunity to continue playing Champions League football will be a big factor should Griezmann decide to move on from Atletico. Whether or not Mourinho is able to get United in the Champions League next season could play a pivitol role on this long rumoured transfer going through.
