He was linked with moves to FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, and many other top European Clubs but decided to stay at his current club.
Atletico Madrid’s star attacker and World Cup winner with France in Russia 2018, Antoine Griezmann has revealed that he would go to the US if former Manchester United and England Superstar David Beckham wanted to. In the recently concluded summer transfer window, Antoine Griezmann was targetted by numerous top clubs including the likes of Real Madrid and FC Barcelona, but the player eventually decided to continue at Atletico Madrid.
Griezmann played a huge role in France’s World Cup triumph. He, along with Mbappe, was crucial to France’s attacking movements. He also scored a goal for France against Croatia in the final, which they 4-2. Beckham’s Inter Miami will start playing in the MLS from 2020 onwards, and the player has also revealed that he wants to finish his career in the US.
The player said, “If Beckham wants me in his club, then I’ll go. I want to finish my career in the US. I don’t know yet if it’s going to be in Miami or Los Angeles. They are two great cities. I like the mentality and the show culture of the US.”

Players like Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney and many others are also linked with a move to Inter Miami in the future. Inter Miami owner David Beckham knows numerous players and is an influential figure capable of attracting big names to the MLS.
While a Cristiano Ronaldo-Wayne Rooney reunion is highly unlikely at the moment, it will be likely to happen once the Portuguese Superstar leaves Juventus. Wayne Rooney currently plies his trade for another MLS outfit DC United.
Even though Griezmann has made it clear his plans to end his career in the US, it is highly unlikely he would make a move to Inter Miami in 2020. He is a highly rated, incredibly talented player. Even if he decides to leave Atletico Madrid in 2012, he will not be short of suitors. A move to the US is best for Griezmann once he gets into the wrong side of the 30s.
