Antoine Griezmann to end career in Major League Soccer

Antoine Griezmann has announced that he is planning to end his career in Major League Soccer.

The Atletico Madrid striker said that his short-term ambitions are to win the Champions League and the World Cup with Les Bleus, but the France international sees himself ending up in the USA.

“World champion, win a Champions League and then I can go and quietly play in the USA. That's my ideal itinerary. It's not bad, is it?” he told Le Figaro.

“If the plan goes like that, I'd sign for that now. I don't know at which age I want to play in MLS, it'll all depend on the trophies I'll have won beforehand.

“When I'm nearer 32 or 33, I want to be there. I still have to be presentable on the pitch.”

Griezmann is at present on international duty with France at the FIFA 2018 World Cup.
