Antoine Griezmann says he would only consider leaving Atletico Madrid if Diego Simeone were to move to another club.
The Rojiblancos star was heavily linked to a move away from the Vicente Calderon in the summer, with Paris Saint-Germain the club said to be leading the chase to sign him.
However, the striker, who played a crucial role as France reached the final of Euro 2016 this year, signed a new contract with Atletico, insisting he wants to help the club grow.
And Griezmann has revealed his decision to remain hinged on his coach’s future as he hopes to learn more from the Argentine, who was also linked to a move to PSG.

“The only doubt would be if Simeone leaves for PSG or wherever,” he told Telefoot.
“I called him before extending my contract and he confirmed to me that he was staying. I can learn a lot from him.
“PSG are not my goal at the moment. I’m happy in Spain.
“I’m always proud to be popular with the fans. I try to smile and do my best. If they like it, it’s even better.”
