Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann says he is willing to leave the La Liga club to win titles and will decide on his future this summer.

On Monday, the France international said there was a "6/10" chance he could join Manchester United.

But Griezmann, 26, told French outlet L'Equipe that England, Germany, China and the USA were all possible destinations should he leave Atletico.

"Today, if I have to move it will be no problem," he said. "I'm ready to go."

Atletico finished third in La Liga and were knocked out in the Champions League semi-finals by Real Madrid.

"I want to win titles," added Griezmann. "We finished third in La Liga, it was the objective of the club, but we, the players, want more.

"Winning titles is what I will look for this summer when deciding on my future."

Chances of Old Trafford move '6/10'

Griezmann said playing in England is "in fashion" and told French TV show Quotidien a move to Old Trafford is "possible".

"I think I will decide [on my future] in the next two weeks," he said.

Asked if United would be his new club he replied: "Possible, possible." Asked to give the chances on a scale of one to 10, Griezmann added "six".

The presenter replied: "It's the first time you've said that." And Griezmann said "it's the first time".

Griezmann, who has won 41 caps for France since making his debut in 2014, scored 26 goals this season as Atletico finished third in La Liga behind Real Madrid and Barcelona.

He was named the third best player in the world behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in the Ballon d'Or awards in January.

There is a 100 million euro (£86m) release clause in Griezmann's contract.

United have the opportunity to qualify for the Champions League by winning the Europa League on Wednesday against Ajax in Stockholm.
