Griezmann turned down PSG offer — agent
Antoine Griezmann’s agent has revealed that the France forward considered offers from Paris Saint-Germain and other clubs before deciding to stay at Atletico Madrid for at least another season.
Griezmann, 25, signed a new contract with Atletico last month after helping them reach the Champions League final for the second time in three years.
The former Real Sociedad player will have won even more admirers after being named player of the tournament at Euro 2016 and winning the Golden Boot with six goals for beaten finalists France.
Sources told ESPN FC last month that Manchester United were also monitoring the player.
Speaking on RMC, Griezmann’s advisor Eric Olhats confirmed that he had been in contact with PSG sporting director Olivier Letang in recent months.
“There were discussions with Olivier Letang,” Olhats said. “There was interest from Paris. We listened because it is all the same a club with objectives and resources.
“After numerous discussions, and drawing a parallel a little bit with other offers, we opted for continuity.”
