Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo has warned that Antoine Griezmann is not for sale, amid reports linking the France international with the likes of Real Madrid, Manchester United, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain. The club chief says "there is not any possibility" of the player leaving, as he is happy at the Vicente Calderon.
Diego Simeone's side appeared to ward off potential Griezmann suitors in June by setting his release clause at €100m (£85.4m, $106m), with the player agreeing a new long-term deal to remain with Los Colchoneros until 2021.
However, stories regarding a big-money move away from the club have not abated, with Griezmann continuing to develop into one of the biggest stars in the game.
His mentor and agent, Eric Olhats, recently revealed that PSG met with Griezmann to discuss a potential return to France in the summer, before he signed a new deal at Atletico Madrid.
The Mirror reported earlier this season that Jose Mourinho wants to make the Frenchman his next marquee signing to complement last summer's arrival of Paul Pogba – while The Telegraph later added that Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is also ready to battle with United for his services.
Griezmann did nothing to dampen speculation linking him with a move to Manchester United after admitting he would like to play alongside France teammate Pogba at club level in the future.
Speaking to Sky Germany, Griezmann said: "I always ask Paul Pogba about Manchester United. I think they are a huge club with a really good infrastructure. I ask Paul about some of the players and if they are really that good, or if Jose Mourinho is really that good.
"You hear a lot of things about Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain but right now I don't see me moving to a new club. But it would be awesome to play alongside Paul one day."
But Cerezo has now claimed the player is not for sale at any price. Griezmann has also been linked with Real Madrid amid suggestions he supported Atletico Madrid's neighbours as a child.
Asked during an interview with Onda Cero whether Griezmann could move to the Bernabeu, Cerezo said: "I think there is not any possibility that Real Madrid or any other team will sign Antoine Griezmann. I am convinced that Real Madrid respects its neighbours. There is a wonderful relationship with them."
Even if Atletico Madrid refuse to negotiate the player's departure, other clubs could still get Griezmann's signature by meeting his €100m release clause. However, Cerezo ruled out that happening by revealing the the Frenchman has no desire to leave.
"Yes, [should they pay €100m they can get him] but they would need to take into account if the player wants to leave."
