Major League Soccer

has long been one of his future goals.

Quizzed if he will move to MLS at the age of 32 or 33, Griezmann told 

Le Figaro 


"I still have three years to go. I have to pay attention to my body, because at any time it can change.

"My contract with Barcelona runs until June 2024 and after that I think it will be the right time to go to the United States.

"I love this country, the culture, the NBA and the desire for adventure attracts me, but I also have a family that I would have to move out there.

"I would like to end my career there but still be good enough on the pitch and win MLS, instead of coming in with nothing to give and looking like nothing on the pitch. That wouldn't make sense."
