The Frenchman has attracted the Premier League duo after strong performances for Real Sociedad, which has also linked him with a move to Ligue 1 champions PSG. But the French giants have had their hopes of signing Griezmann scuppered, potentially leaving the door open for a summer switch to the Premier League.
After hearing about the rumours linking him with PSG, Griezmann, 23, took to Twitter to defuse talk over a move to his home country:
“To clarify, despite rumours about a signature at PSG – no contacts or decisions in this direction have been considered. After seeing the news of my possible match with PSG – I wanted to deny any kind of agreement or conversation with the club.”
The midfielder, who has scored 15 La Liga goals for Real Sociedad this season, decided only to rule out a move to the Ligue 1 champions, and made no comment about his willingness to stay with the Spanish club. Real Sociedad are currently 6th in Spain, 10 points adrift of the top 4.
Manchester United have been linked with a move for the Frenchman, as David Moyes prepares for a summer spending spree to get United back to winning ways. The Scot has been criticised for not strengthening the club’s midfield in his previous two transfer windows, and could turn to Griezmann to add goals to his team for next season.
