United target Griezmann: I'd only leave Atletico to play for Knicks

Antoine Griezmann says he would only leave Atletico Madrid to play alongside Derrick Rose for National Basketball Association side New York Knicks.

Antoine Griezmann has confirmed he is happy at Atletico Madrid and joked he would only consider a move to join Derrick Rose at the New York Knicks in the National Basketball Association.

Griezmann has made 52 appearances across all competitions for Atletico this season and has scored 26 goals.

The coveted individual trophy went to Ronaldo, who has already been tipped to win the 2017 edition owing to his heroics for Real Madrid in the Champions League and La Liga. I want to enjoy the present and don't plan for tomorrow.

But the 37-year-old midfielder, who is now plying his trade in Qatar's Al Sadd SC, wants the Los Blancos to lose for the sake of Juventus' star custodian Gianluigi Buffon who is yet to win the Champions League in his illustrated career.

Friday night, there is an 80 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, with a low of 60, according to the weather service. Storm chances stick around in Eastern Oklahoma, but the severe threat will be lower than that of Thursday and Friday .

Atletico are due to move to a new stadium this summer and there will be plenty of speculation that this will be Antoine Griezmann's final game for Diego Simeone's side as well. "But we will see what can happen". It's true that a year ago I called him before signing a new deal because I wanted to continue working with him. "We want to improve and we are doing it with el Cholo [Simeone] and the rest of my teammates", Griezmann said while encouraging Atletico to make a move for Paris Saint Germain striker Edinson Cavani. "We will continue here while we can", he said.

"I love Cavani. He has our style". "He would be a top signing".

Griezmann told AS: "I'm very comfortable here".

However, Juventus have been the more defensively solid team - which will come as a surprise to no one who has seen them play this year - conceding only three goals in the entire Champions League. However, Griezmann did hint at a move away from Madrid - not to England but instead to a team in the National Basketball Association.
