Torres urges teammate Griezmann to stay

Fernando Torres is urging Atletico Madrid teammate Antoine Griezmann to resist a move to Manchester United.

The Red Devils are favourites to land the Frenchman this summer.

“You can go to many other places in the world and they cannot offer what Atletico can offer you right now,” Torres told Football Focus.

“Competing in the league, competing in the Champions League, one of the most respected teams in Europe. There is no reason to leave. Where are you going to go to improve what you have in Atletico? Not many places in the world. I hope he can stay with us forever. We were in the Champions League final, he played in the Euro final with France, so I think he realises how difficult it is to become champion, but he is right there.
