France international Griezmann, a strong target for Manchester United, revealed to RMC Sport that perhaps one day he can see himself playing for either club, with Marseille the more likely.

“Marseille, they have been my club since I was small,” he said.

“Aside from that, I felt close to Lyon, because it was closer [to where I am from] and when they had Sonny Anderson, Juninho and then Benzema. But yes, as a youngster, it was Marseille.

“I remember, I had the gold shirt (1999 edition). I went to the Velodrome one time with a friend and my parents. It was great.

“Today, I think that the most beautiful stadium is Lyon’s. The atmosphere is truly great.”

On the topic of one day joining Marseille, Griezmann added: “Maybe later, but not for the moment. It is not my main aim.”
