Antoine Griezmann hasn’t exactly set the world on fire since joining Barcelona, but the French forward still dreams of turning things around winning big titles with the Catalan club. He also wants to do well with France, and maybe defend the World Cup title in Qatar 2022.

Griezmann also has a clear idea of what to do at the end of his career: play in Major League Soccer.

“Winning La Liga and the Champions League with Barça would be a dream, and also my objective. After that winning whatever comes. There’s another World Cup so the World Cup in Qatar. And after that MLS.

“I don’t know with which team, but I really want to play there. For me it’s an objective to end my career in the United States with the possibility of playing well and being a big part of the team and fighting for a title.”

Griezmann isn’t the only Barça forward speaking of a fututre move to MLS: Luis Suárez has talked about it multiple times, and David Beckham’s big dream is to have Suárez and Lionel Messi continue their partnership at Inter Miami.
