Beckham’s call will be enough for Griezmann  

Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann has revealed that he would go to David Beckham-owned Major League Soccer outfit Inter Miami should the former England star ask him to.

Beckham’s team is set to feature in the MLS from 2020 and the former Real Sociedad star has openly admitted that he would join them as he desires to end his career in the United States of America.

'If Beckham wants me in his club then I'll go, I want to finish my career in the US,' the France international told L'Equipe.

He then added that he is yet to choose the city which he would represent and praised the mentality and culture of the USA.

“I don't know yet if it's going to be in Miami or Los Angeles. Two great cities.

'I like the mentality and the show culture of the US.'

This is not the first time that the Frenchman has been outspoken as he has a history of speaking his mind. The Atletico Madrid star recently claimed that he deserves to be in the top three of the Ballon d’Or nomination and was disappointed to see no French players in the top three of FIFA The Best.

Earlier in the year, Griezmann followed the footsteps of LeBron James to make a video about a decision with regards to his future. The video was hyped to contain the ‘decision’ – wherein the Frenchman announces whether he stays and Atletico Madrid or leaves the Rojiblancos for a move to Barcelona.

While he might have gained a lot of criticism for attempting a stunt like this, his decision to stay at Atleti meant that his reputation with the fans wasn’t tarnished – unlike what happened with LeBron James.

With this announcement, he opens up the debate of whether Atleti would be his final chapter in European football.
