Antoine Griezmann is the probably the best player in the world who does not play for either Real Madrid or Barcelona. Griezmann has every club in the world running after his signature which makes him the hottest property in world football. And now we see another twist to this transfer saga as Antoine Griezmann refuses to rule out a switch to Real Madrid !
His sensational displays for Atletico Madrid have only been matched by his fantastic performances for France on the international stage. Last season was a tough for him as he came agonizingly close to winning both the Champions League and the Euro 2016.
But Atletico lost on penalties to Real in the final while France suffered a shock defeat to Portugal in the big final in front of their home fans. Griezmann had to watch Ronaldo celebrate both those victories while he remained empty handed.
But now with Griezmann being open to a switch to Real Madrid, we could possibly see a front three of Ronaldo, Bale and Griezmann. This is what Griezmann said to the press.
“I am at Atletico and I feel good, to speak of Real today would not be very good in relation to the Atleti fans.Do I want to go there? If I respond with yes or no I put myself in sh**. The jump from Atletico to Real only happens very rarely and is very difficult”
“But you never know what can happen in the future. My advisor, Eric Olhats, receives calls and communicates with me. So, I am not ruling anything out”
The Atletico management should be prepared for the worst as the mere fact that Antoine Griezmann refuses to rule out a switch to Real Madrid is worrying for them.

While Real and Atletico have signed a pact to not sign any players from each other this could prove to an exception. If Griezmann really wants to come to Real Madrid then Perez would probably forget any non – aggression pact that they have signed and would break the bank for the French international.
It has made this summer’s transfer saga of Griezmann all the more interesting !
