Rumoured Manchester United target Antoine Griezmann admits that he is open to moving to the Premier League from Atletico Madrid one day.

Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann has admitted that he is open to moving to the Premier League in the future amid rumours that he is wanted by Manchester United.

The France international has been linked with the Red Devils over the past few months, and the player himself recently claimed that he has regularly asked Paul Pogba about the club.

In an interview with Telefoot, Griezmann ruled out playing in Ligue 1 anytime soon, admitting instead that he would prefer to move to another club in La Liga or switch to the English top flight.

The striker did stress, though, that he is "good" at Atletico and that a transfer "is not necessarily one of my objectives".

"I cannot go to Real - there is a pact between the two clubs that prohibits a transfer," said Griezmann. "At Barca, there is no pact but their front three are indispensable.

"PSG? It is an interesting possibility but Ligue 1 does not interest me for now. I would prefer to stay in La Liga or go to the Premier League."

Griezmann, who joined Atletico from Real Sociedad in 2014, has scored 22 league goals in each of his last two seasons.
