Antoine Griezmann has admitted that he would prefer a move to the Premier League over Ligue 1, if he decides to leave Atletico Madrid. He has been a star player for both the club and country and his form has attracted interest from top clubs across Europe.

The 25-year-old was a key player in Atletico's last campaign, where they finished runners-up in the Champions League, losing yet another final to local rivals Real Madrid. He was the top scorer for Diego Simeone's side in the league and also in all competitions.

Griezmann continued his club form at the Euro 2016, where he was left disappointed as host nation France lost to Portugal in the final. According to the Mirror, Jose Mourinho's Manchester United and his former club Chelsea are interested in bringing the forward to England.

In addition to this, Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly in the race for his signature. The France international has ruled out any moved to Ligue 1 and as well as a chance to play for Barcelona, which has opened the door for a future move to England.

"A transfer between Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid is not an option. Barcelona would be an option. But they have three untouchables in attack at the moment," Griezmann told Telefoot.

"PSG could be an interesting option, but I do not want to move to Ligue 1 at this stage of my career. I prefer to stay in La Liga or maybe move to the Premier League. I have heard the Premier League is crazy, so why not? But I do not want to leave Atletico at all costs."

The same Mirror report claims that Griezmann has an £85m ($106.2m) release clause in his contract, which will keep him at Vicente Calderon until 2021. So far, the Frenchman has nine goals and registered six assists in all competitions this season.
