Antoine Griezmann is making plans for the end of his Barcelona odyssey.
The French striker’s dream has always been to one day play in the United States, a country he greatly admires.
Now he seems to have set a date to make this dream come true. Griezmann is part of the France squad at Euro 2020 and has done well so far in the tournament after a patchy season with Barcelona.

In his interview with Figaro, he also admitted that he doesn’t see himself playing for another European club – at least for now. At 33, he will go in search of a new adventure. But before that, he has goals to achieve with Barcelona.
“I’m still three years old. I have to focus on my career because anything can change at any time … I would love to play in the United States but as the best player on a team that can win MLS, not when my legs are gone and I have nothing more to offer on the pitch, “he concluded.
