Griezmann used United interest - Luis

Antoine Griezmann used the interest from Manchester United in the summer to get a better deal out of Atletico Madrid.

That is the view of Atletico defender Filipe Luis who claims the French international is happy where he is and he will be staying in the Spanish capital for years to come.

Jose Mourinho targeted Griezmann in the summer but there was no chance of any deal when the transfer ban on Atletico was upheld as they would not have been able to find a replacement and Luis says the deal was a non-starter.

"Griezmann is a kid who speaks very clearly," Luis told El Mundo. "Often players talk when they feel they are not being valued as they deserve.

"Then they get more attention. He would have had many offers from many teams.

"A player of his size wants to be up with the biggest in terms of contract and value. And that is fair - as Griezmann is doing great here.

"In the end, for all the talk about other clubs, he always wanted to stay here and he is still here, happy and liking it."
