Griezmann extends Atletico contract amid links with United

GRIEZMANN EXTENDS ATLETICO CONTRACT AMID LINKS WITH UNITED

Atletico Madrid announced a contract renewal of Antoine Griezmann until 2022 on Tuesday as the player apologized for his dalliance with Manchester United.

Antoine Griezmann has extended his contract at Atletico Madrid by an extra season, tying the France forward to the Spanish club through June 2022.

Griezmann has been linked with a move to Manchester United and made comments in the media saying his future was unclear.

In a club statement announcing his contract extension, the 26-year-old Griezmann says he wanted to "apologize to the people who misunderstood my statements. Maybe I expressed myself badly or someone wanted to make news where there (wasn't) any."

Atletico is currently banned from registering new players after breaching FIFA rules over the signing of minors.
