United could swoop for the Atletico star
Manchester United are reportedly moving back in for Antoine Griezmann.
The Atletico Madrid wantaway declared his intention to leave the club last week and it was assumed his destination would be Barcelona.
It’s been long-rumoured that Griezmann would join up with Lionel Messi and co at Camp Nou, however this has now hit a snag.
Reports suggest that several members of the Barca hierarchy are unconvinced whether the benefits of a potential ‘£100m+’ signing justify such a huge outlay.
As a result, it is now being claimed by the Independent that Man United have re-established contact and a deal is possible.
The 28-year-old Frenchman has been at Atletico for five years, scoring 133 goals in 257 games (as well as picking up 50 assists along the way).
With his national team, Griezmann has 28 goals in 69 caps and was part of the team that won the World Cup last summer.
