Cape Town - Antoine Griezmann insists he will make a decision on his future in the coming weeks, although Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo will have the final say.

The France international is believed to be a top target for Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho as he looks to add more quality to his squad for the club's return to the Champions League next season.

Griezmann enjoyed another fine campaign with Los Colchoneros, scoring 26 goals in 53 appearances across all competitions and helping them reach the semi-finals of Europe's elite club competition.

Reports in the Spanish media claimed on Tuesday that the 26-year-old forward had informed Atletico of his wish to leave the Spanish capital during the off-season.

But Griezmann says he is happy in his current surroundings and that the situation will become clearer in the weeks ahead.

"I'm fine at my club. My agents are talking with Atletico, so we'll see what happens," the Real Sociedad youth product said on Minuto 0.

"I'm going to make a decision this summer. As I said, I'm happy here.

"I've talked with my coach, Koke and (Diego) Godin. It's in the hands of the president. We'll see what happens."
