The World Cup winner says he is happy in the Spanish capital, but could play in Germany one day

Antoine Griezmann has praised the standard of German football, suggesting that he would be open to the possibility of a move to the Bundesliga in the future.

The French attacker was a first-hand witness to this quality only a fortnight ago, with Borussia Dortmund handing Atletico Madrid a 4-0 drubbing in the Champions League.

Ahead of Tuesday's return fixture, the 27-year-old recognised the Bundesliga's high standard, even going as far as to suggest that it could be a destination of his in the future.

Speaking to Kicker he said: "It could be (a league I could play in) but I feel very comfortable here with Atletico. We have a beautiful project here that I identify with 100 per cent. I want to help the club grow as it helps me grow, and we want to create history.

"It's a very offensive league with a lot of attacking. I think Borussia Dortmund reflects the league quite well."

The forward has repeatedly been linked with a move to Bayern Munich in recent years.

Griezmann also suggested that the Bundesliga is underestimated in relation to some of its European competitors, putting it on par with the Premier League and just behind La Liga. 

"I would put Spain in first place - in the round of 16 and quarter-finals of the Champions League there are many Spanish teams - followed by the Bundesliga or the Premier League.

"The Premier League is indeed more popular and is the world's most viewed and the Bundesliga is a bit in the shadow. There is less talk about it, but as far as talents and the teams are concerned, the difference is not much.

"The Bundesliga is very attractive, attacking football is played and there are many goals, as we had to experience in Dortmund the other day."

The Frenchman scored on Saturday, but it was not enough for Atletico Madrid who were held 1-1 by Leganes, their third draw in five league matches.
