Antoine Griezmann in action for France

Since the last few years, Antoine Griezmann has taken the football world by storm with his efficient goal-scoring skills. Atletico Madrid's number 7 has been an integral part of Diego Simeone's side that has won one league title and reached two UEFA Champions League finals. He raised his value higher after being the top-scorer in Euro 2016, scoring 6 goals. Also, Grizou amassed 16 goals and 8 assists in the last season.

Griezmann showed his loyalty to Atletico by agreeing to stay, after they were banned from making any transfers. Manchester United had been vying for his signature for quite some time, though the French forward opted to stay put.

Yet, with recent developments at the club adding fuel to the fire his transfer saga has become, Grizou appears sure to move. But when? Summer or winter? Here are five reasons why he will definitely join the Red Devils in the near future.

Grizou seems to be regretting his decision to stay in Spain.

If recent reports from Spain are to be believed, The French talisman is seemingly unhappy with Atletico's future ambitions regarding signing big-name players.

Griezmann was reported to have agreed on a massive deal with Manchester United prior to Atletico's transfer ban. With goal-keeper Jan Oblak's future at the club in jeopardy, Griezmann warned Simeone about his intentions to leave if his teammate decided to leave. Jan Oblak was linked with a move to Paris Saint Germain earlier this summer.

Simeone assured the Frenchman with a promise to sign former Atletico star Diego Costa from Chelsea. But, with Atletico's failure to keep their promise, Grizou has certainly made up his mind about quitting Los Colchoneros.
