France striker Antoine Griezmann has dropped a big hint that he is still interested in a move to Manchester United, even though he insists he is in no rush to leave Atletico Madrid.

Griezmann turned down the chance to move to United last summer as he decided to stay loyal to his current employers after they had a transfer embargo imposed on them by FIFA.

The striker subsequently signed a new contract with Atletico to reward him for his loyalty, yet he has come under fire from the club's supporters for some of his performances this season and is currently on an eight-game goalless run at club level.

Now he has been talking about his future once again, as he hinted his move to United could be revived in his new book.

"In June, I extended my contract. I'm linked to the club until 2022," he stated.

"Although I might be missing out on titles, I have everything here to be happy but that does not mean to say I won't go one day.

"I haven't made that decision. It all depends on various factors. I have nothing against England except for the weather. Manchester United is a possibility.

"As much as I repeat that I am delighted at Atletico, I have a great coach and great team-mates, they regularly ask me about my future. I do not exclude anything."

Griezmann has constantly suggested the notoriously wet Manchester weather is one of the reasons why he may not enjoy life in the north west of England, with Barcelona also reported to be interested in signing the 26-year-old striker.
