How long will Antoine Griezmann stay with Atlético de Madrid? Apparently, a long time, as the French attacker had some words to say about a potential move to Real Madrid.

"Zidane hasn't called me, and if he did, I'd tell him that I am happy with Atlético, we're close to signing a contract extension. Zidane is a great person and also a great coach," said Griezmann.

Atlético and Real Madrid will face in the 2016 Champions League Final, a game that will define the season for Los Blancos given their lack of success in La Liga and also in the Copa del Rey. Griezmann will be Atlético's most dangerous man in that match.

"I'm happy with everything that happened to me during this year, and we are hoping to close out the season in good fashion by winning the Champions League and then the Euro. This will be my first Champions League Final and I want to raise that trophy," he added.
