Manchester United have been warned in their pursuit of Antoine Griezmann by Atletico Madrid president Enrico Cerezo, who insists their star players will stay.

The Red Devils have been linked with a move for the France striker, who has been in sensational form once again this season.
The 26-year-old has hit 22 goals and provided 11 assists this season, but despite intense speculation, Cerezo is calm surrounding his future.
"The best players will always end up playing where they want but now fortunately we have players who want to play at Atletico," Cerezo told Reuters.
"We are doing well in the Champions League, we finish high in the league every season, we will have a magnificent stadium and we have a brilliant fan base who love all the players. We have everything a player could want."
The key to Atletico's remarkable success, which has included a La Liga title and twice finishing runner-up in the Champions League, is Diego Simeone.
And while 'El Cholo' is happy in Madrid, Atletico appear well-positioned to absorb the loss of any key players.
"He came here when the team was in a very difficult situation and changed everything and has kept us at the top for five years. Simeone has demonstrated he is a magnificent coach, he is a magnificent Atletico fan," Cerezo adds.
"He has a great life here in Madrid, he's just had a baby girl, he and his wife are very happy here. Everyone from the fans to the president to the board supports him, what more could he ask for?"
