  • Griezmann forced to defend himself over blacked-up 'tribute'

"I know that he needs to grow".

After a string of angry responses, Griezmann returned to Twitter to post: "Calm down friends, I'm fan of the Harlem globetrotters and the good times.it's a tribute".

The change in heart came after Griezmann felt he couldn't abandon the side at a time when they were unable to replace him.

Atletico manager Diego Simone now admits he will not stop any player from leaving the club if they were offered a once-in-a-lifetime move.

Simeone said he would not deny the chance to leave to any of his players if they wanted to continue their growth somewhere else.

"Of course Griezmann will be able to leave at some point, the same way (Diego) Costa and Arda Turan were allowed to leave", Simeone told l'Equipe.

The France global, who has continually been linked with a transfer to Manchester United, posted a snap of fancy dress outfit for an "80's party" on Twitter.

According to Miguel Delaney of The Independent, both Barcelona and Manchester United hold an interest in the forward, though it's suggested the La Liga leaders are "far ahead" of the Premier League side in pursuit of the player.

Andrelton Simmons and Martin Maldonado , both 2017 Gold Glove winners, return to lead the middle of the defense. It would be nice to sign a player such as Cozart who the Reds can rely on as they continue to rebuild.

Not that they are the only two.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has opened the door to buying in January.

Aouar has been one of the stand-out performers in Ligue 1 this season and Barcelona view the 19-year-old as a medium-term target, rather than a signing for the January transfer window.
