"It was my choice", the 26-year-old told Telefoot.

The France worldwide was linked to Manchester United in the off-season, but ended up staying at Atletico due to the club's transfer ban.

He has managed just three goals in 14 appearances in all competitions, and when compared to the same time last season, he had scored eight goals.

United were bitterly disappointed to miss out on Griezmann, who they thought was keen to move to Old Trafford where he could link up with global team-mate, Paul Pogba.

Diego Simeone pledged to support Antoine Griezmann after the out-of-sorts forward was whistled by Atletico Madrid fans during the 0-0 draw with rivals Real Madrid on Saturday. In addition, Diego Costa and Vitolo will come, so we'll try to keep the team high enough.

Griezmann also insisted he does not wish he had left Atletico at the start of the season.

The French worldwide may not be long for Atletico Madrid, if the latest reports are accurate.

'These two reinforcements will do us good. Although, I might be missing out on titles, I have everything here to be happy but that does not mean to say I won't go one day.

Atletico, who have only three points from four Champions League games, must beat Roma at home and Chelsea away while hoping one of the two slip up against Qarabag, if they are to progress from Group C.

Griezmann has angered some Atletico fans by publicly flirting with a move away before agreeing to stay and signing an improved contract when the club's appeal against a transfer ban was rejected in June.

"I did not discuss this (an exit agreement) with the president".

"I'm with my family, while they are still there".
