Antoine Griezmann Hints At Link Up With David Beckham
Antoine Griezmann has dropped his biggest hint yet that he could join David Beckham's Inter Miami, revealing he's already eyeing up a move to Major League Soccer in the future.
The Barcelona forward finally made his big money move away from Atletico Madrid last summer, after several false starts to leaving Atleti, but his move has not been as much of a success as hoped.
Griezmann has scored just eight goals, and set up four, in 26 games in La Liga and scored two in seven in the Champions League. Despite still having plenty to prove at the Nou Camp, the 29-year-old is already eyeing a move to America.
"Winning La Liga and the Champions League with Barca would be a dream, and also my objective," the forward told the LA Times.
"After that winning whatever comes. There's another World Cup so the World Cup in Qatar. And after that MLS.
"I don't know with which team, but I really want to play there. For me it's an objective to end my career in the United States with the possibility of playing well and being a big part of the team and fighting for a title."
Whilst the Euro 2016 Golden Boot winner said he didn't know which team his previous comments about Beckham make Inter Miami favourites to sign him, whenever he decides to move Stateside.
In 2017 the forward admitted the former Manchester United winger was the reason for his football quirk saying, "I liked him (David Beckham) a lot. He was my idol. That's why I wear a long-sleeved jersey and wear the No7."
Last summer he again talked up 'Becks' as his role model, saying, "This midfielder was a true pop star of football. Through his looks and his manner, he was also prized in the worlds of fashion and advertising. And he's my absolute role model. He is the only one I would have loved to play with.
"I have always found Beckham to be perfect, both on the pitch and off it. There was a charisma and class about everything he did. He was elegant on the field and in life, and he always dressed well."
This season is the first for the former England captain's newly former Inter Miami side and they'd lost their opening two games before the season was stopped.
Beckham and his side are yet to splash out on any big name signings but they have been linked with several big names in the past, including Griezmann's strike partner Lionel Messi, and are likely to make a big money move in the future.
Griezmann could be the perfect choice, even if it's not for another two years.
