Cape Town - Atletico Madrid defender Felipe Luis claims teammate Antoine Griezmann will not be leaving the Vincente Calderon in the off season.

The France international forward has been strongly linked with a moves to Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain over the past 12 months and rumours intensified this season with Diego Simeone's men unable to sustain a title challenge.

However, ahead of the quarter-final clash with English Premier League champions Leicester City, Luis claims there's nothing to talk about in reference of the 26-year-old's future.

"We do not have to say anything, everyone is sure [Griezmann] will stay," he said in the pre-match press conference.

"Week in, week out he gets better, the man is a genius and I can see why he is being linked with winning the Ballon d'Or."

The former Real Sociedad forward has scored 23 goals and registered 11 assists in 43 games across all competitions in the current campaign.
