Steven Gerard Reveals ONE Embrassing Reason Why Griezmann Rejected Manchester United

Liverpool hero Steven Gerard has revealed Antoine Griezmann turned down the option to join Manchester United due to their lack of Champions League action.

The Red Devils are hot on trail for the Atletico Madrid forward with suggestions he could move next summer but will have to rival other Premier League clubs who are also keen on signing Greizmann. Gerard has now claimed the Frenchman will not be thrilled at the prospects of missing the Champions League action.

The Liverpool hero told BT Sport.: “He’s playing in the Champions League for Atlético Madrid,”

“He’s got a chance of competing for that, which they have done for the past couple of years.

“And he’s probably thinking: ‘Yeah, Manchester United probably is a good move, but it’s still going to be there in the summer.”
