Antoine Griezmann: Atletico Madrid exit would be 'dirty move'”

Antoine Griezmann has made an apparent pledge of allegiance to Atletico Madrid hours after Manchester United cooled their interest in a summer transfer. "Atletico can not recruit. With my sporting advisor, Eric Olhats, we chose to stay", the striker said. "It's a hard moment for the club, for my teammates", Griezmann said.

The Frenchman was linked very heavily with a move to Manchester United at several points in the season.

The club also appeared to reference the case of neighbours Real, with the recently crowned Spanish champions able to sign players once again this summer after serving their reduced ban during the January transfer window. It would be dirty move to leave now.

The punishment comes after Federation Internationale de Football Association found Atletico had breached transfer regulations by signing a handful of youth players, breaking rules regarding child trafficking.

Manchester United's long-drawn out flirtation with signing Antoine Griezmann has come to a sudden halt, according to reports, but the club seems to have wrapped up one signing this summer.

Giggs, the most decorated player in United's history, told Sky Sports News HQ: "I'm not so sure if we've heard the end of that".

But reports on Thursday in the United Kingdom media claimed the Premier League giants had cooled their interest in the 26-year-old, who is understood to have a €100million release clause in his Atleti contract. They had planned to sign Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette, who was seen as a likely replacement for Griezmann.

Jose Mourinho was critical of his team's wastefulness in front of goal last season as they registered just 54 Premier League goals.

CAS said its appeal panel had upheld the Atletico ban, but reduced the fine from 900,000 Swiss francs (827,000 euros, $927,000) to 550,000 francs.
