With Atletico already out of this season’s Champions League, there’s been some speculation that Griezmann could move in January. But his team-mate Torres is hopeful he will stay in the Spanish capital.

‘Griezmann is still with us and we have to enjoy him, Atletico can sign and keep hold of the best players,’ the former Liverpool and Chelsea player told Radio MARCA.

‘I would love it if Griezmann wants to stay at Atletico.’
