Diego Simeone believes there is a possibility of losing forward Antoine Griezmann to other clubs, due to the lack of security at Atletico Madrid.
Griezmann is one of the most wanted forwards in the world and stated this week that it would be a dream to play for the likes of Bayern, Barcelona or even Real Madrid.
And even though the Frenchman insists he is committed to Atletico, speculation lingers with Manchester United interested in his signature.
Asked by AS if there was a risk of the 26-year-old leaving, Simeone replied: “Yes, because there is a termination clause. There is no security.”
“That’s what he told me – if you stay, I’ll stay,” added Simeone. “And I said yes, why would I not stay? And they began to work with the representatives for everything that had to be signed. And he stayed.
“And from now on I do not know what can happen. He would never let me tell him to stay. I did not do it with [Diego] Costa or [Radamel] Falcao.
“To the players who have given me life I accompany them in the decisions that they make. But it is clear that for as long as he stays, the team and the club will continue to grow.”
