Cape Town - Transfer rumours of Antoine Griezmann joining Manchester United have intensified after the Atletico Madrid forward claimed his preferred destination is England.

Despite admitting he is happy at the Vicente Calderon, he reiterated that since Ligue 1 is not a league that interests him he has limited options of a transfer - besides the English Premier League.

Last month, in an exclusive interview with Skysports the former Real Sociedad man claimed he'd love to play alongside compatriot Paul Pogba at The Red Devils one day.

"I cannot go to Real - there is a pact between the two clubs that prohibits a transfer. At Barca, there is no pact but their front three are indispensable," he told Telefoot.

"PSG? It is an interesting possibility but Ligue 1 does not interest me for now," the 25-year-old added. 

"I would prefer to stay in La Liga or go to the Premier League."
