• Griezmann has been linked with moves to United and Barcelona this year.
  • The Frenchman has not scored for Atletico since 23 September.

Antoine Griezmann has cooled talks about a potential exit from Atletico Madrid after confirming that he has not spoken to club president Enrique Cerezo about leaving.

The France international also made it clear that he has no regrets about staying with Atletico after being heavily linked with a move to Manchester United in the summer.

Griezmann committed his future to the Spanish capital club after they were handed a transfer ban despite the possibility of joining Jose Mourinho's revolution at Old Trafford. The striker is confident that he can turn around his form despite not scoring for almost two months.

The 26-year-old's drop in form has coincided with Atletico's struggles in the league. Diego Simeone's side's chances of challenging for the title have all but been extinguished as they are already 10 points behind leaders Barcelona.

Griezmann, however, remains confident that the team's fortunes will improve in the New Year when summer signings Diego Costa and Vitolo become eligible to play. The Frenchman has also been linked with a move to Barcelona in recent weeks, but it remains unlikely that he will leave when the transfer window reopens in January.

"I don't regret it, it was my choice even though I've now gone seven games without scoring," Griezmann said in a chat with French television's Telefoot, as quoted by Marca. "I will score again soon."

"No, Diego Costa and Vitolo will come so we'll have to fight to keep the team as high as possible," the Frenchman said when asked about Atletico struggling in fourth place.

"I have not talked to the president about leaving."

The Atletico forward also laid the blame for his drop in form squarely on himself and believes he needs to work harder to turn it around. He has managed just three goals in 14 appearances in all competitions, and when compared to the same time last season, he had scored eight goals.

"I'm happy with all my performances with the national team but with only two or three Atletico matches," Griezmann admitted. "I have to improve and find my best form."

"It depends on me, how I train and work. There are games where I don't even get one shot on target and that's my problem. I have to work to take the team to the top."
