Antoine Griezmann’s Rumoured Move To Sporting Kansas City Laid To Rest

Sporting Kansas City boss Peter Vermes address rumors linking the MLS side to France star Antoine Griezmann Tuesday.

In an open training session Tuesday, the Sporting boss was asked about the French striker and whether or not he has ever made contact with Griezmann regarding a potential move to MLS.

“He’s a great player. Fantastic… Big time quality. He’s a world class player. If he’s interested, then he’d be a good player to start recruiting,” Vermes said.

When asked if he’s ever made contact with the striker, Vermes replied “no.”

Griezmann’s love for all things American sports, including MLS, are well noted. He has mentioned numerous times that he wants to make a move stateside at some point in his career, and the rumors resurfaced last week after he was pictured swapping signed jerseys with NFL and Kansas City Chiefs star Patrick Mahomes at a showcase game in Frankfurt, Germany.

The Atletico Madrid star is in action for France during the international break with matches against Gibraltar and Greece. Meanwhile, the MLS side take on Houston Dynamo in the Western Conference semifinals on November 26.
