Antoine Griezmann tells Spanish press he's staying at Atletico Madrid

Click through the gallery above to see the latest odds on Antoine Griezmann's club after the summer transfer window.

Diego Simeone insists Atletico Madrid are fully focused on the second leg of their Champions League Last-16 tie with Bayer Leverkusen.

Manchester United are making the France global an important transfer target, but they might have to do a lot to lure him away.

The club also believe Red Devils midfielder Paul Pogba could play a part in persuading his global colleague to make the huge move to Old Trafford.

Challenged by Zakaria as to whether Kislyak had any similar meetings with Hillary Clinton , Peskov was vague. The spokesman characterized there interactions as fairly typical.

"I am always asked the same question and I am pretty sick of it, but like I always say, I am very happy here", he told Spain's TVE Telediario de La1. "The teammates I have are the best, a top manager, so I'm very good here and there's no reason to leave". Manchester United would likely need Champions League football to tempt Griezmann, and Atletico themselves aren't assured of getting a place in Europe's premier competition. "So I am doing very well here and there is no reason to go".

The hosts looked set to cling on for a valuable point until Griezmann produced a superb diving header following a cross by Koke six minutes from time to grab the victory. "I see no reason why I would want to leave".

Antoine Griezmann's last contract with Atletico Madrid was signed last summer, and will run until 2021.

Griezmann remains adamant that Diego Simeone will stay at the helm too as Atleti look forward to a new stadium and continued success on the pitch, and so a move to United looks further away than ever now.
