Several English Premier League clubs including Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea are all reportedly making frantic efforts to land the 25-year-old to their respective clubs, but Griezmann says he is happy at Atletico.

"I feel great at the club and in Madrid," he told FIFA website. "On a personal level I'm very happy, and in football terms we're about to move to a new stadium, which is very important.

"Simeone has changed me. He's brought so many things to my game. I wouldn't have been regarded as one of the best players in the world if it weren't for him.

"We'll just have to see what the future brings, but for now I'm very happy here and I hope to win trophies with this club."

He went further to tell French radio station RMC on Tuesday, February 14, that even he he will leave Atletico, he would rather remain in Spain.

"Who knows how the season will finish? If it finishes badly, maybe I will ask myself the question, but then where would I go?" he said.

"In Spain, Barcelona have Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez, and a move to Real Madrid would be impossible because I play for Atletico.

"Germany is not a league that appeals to me, France, not right now, and as for England, I do watch the Premier League but I have doubts about the lifestyle. Rain, bad weather, I need to be happy off the pitch.

"I like the style of play in England and that the referees let the game flow and the grounds are always full, but the Spanish league is better suited to my style of play."
