Antoine Griezmann has confirmed he wants to stay at Atletico Madrid in the wake of the club's transfer ban.

The France star has been heavily linked with Manchester United throughout the season, while Real Madrid have also been credited with an interest.

Griezmann pledges loyalty to Atletico

Griezmann suggested he could be tempted to move to Old Trafford when he said that his prospects of a transfer were "six out of 10" last month.

However, the 26-year-old has decided that it would be unfair to quit Atletico after the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) upheld the transfer ban that prohibits them from registering any new players before next January.

"The CAS sanction has been passed. I've decided to stay," Griezmann told Telefoot.

"It's been another good season and hopefully we can make some good signings in January.

"It's a tough moment for the club, for my team-mates, and it would be a low blow to leave now."

Giggs: Griezmann still a target

Griezmann first hinted at staying put after seeing Atletico stung with a ban on bringing fresh faces on board.

He posted on Twitter: "Now more than ever, Atleti"

A 26-goal haul in the 2016-17 campaign has taken Griezmann to 83 efforts in 16o appearances for Atletico.
