The Real Madrid icon netted five goals over two legs against Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter finals before a hat-trick against Antoine Griezmann's Atletico all but secured his club's UCL final berth. "[.] I plan to stay with Atletico as I'm happy here, just as I was on my first day at the club".

The France global has been linked with a big-money move in the summer throughout the 2016-17 season given his eye-catching performances for los Rojiblancos.

Antoine Griezmann believes Juventus will see off Real Madrid in the Champions League final and Gianluigi Buffon should be given the Ballon d'Or ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo.

"Last year I rang him before signing the new contract, but if he goes now I have no reason to leave", he said.

'I want titles, team titles, I will give everything at Atletico for that'.

But the Frenchman insisted he is content at Atletico: 'Our objectives will become clear with the signings that the president makes. "But we will see what can happen". What we have been doing with this squad is fantastic.

Atleti have been linked with a move for Paris Saint-Germain star Edinson Cavani and Griezmann said he was "a big fan", also praising Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette. I do not even know what time I train tomorrow!

And L'Equipe journalist Ghazi claims an "enormous proposition" has been put forward to Griezmann by United as they bid to win the race to sign one of Europe's top talents.

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

"I continue at Atletico because I am happy".
