Antoine Griezmann appears to have killed of all rumours of a transfer, with a Tweet which declares his allegiance to Atletico Madrid.

After all the speculation of a potential move, Man United are reported to have cooled their interest in the French forward, shorty after the Spanish club lost an appeal against a transfer ban.

The ruling prevents them from signing players until January 2018, which means they would be unable to replace the forward who has scored 83 goals for the club.

Griezmann has a buyout price of £87m as part of his deal with Atletico which runs until 2021, and previously expressed some interest in a move to Old Trafford.

United however, appear to have changed their priorities.

They now seem to be on the hunt for a player who plays exclusively as a striker, rather than continue pressing for Griezmann who is a versatile forward.

In any case, Griezmann seems content to remain with Atletico Madrid based on his most recent activity on Twitter.

He wrote, 'Now more than ever' on his official page.
