Antoine Griezmann has been linked with a move to Manchester United for some time and last week claimed that there was a 60% chance of playing for us next season.

Spanish journalist, Antonio Ruiz, who has very good links with Atletico Madrid, has claimed that the player has told the club that he wants to leave.

Paul Pogba, compatriot and good friend of Griezmann, was asked about whether the forward would be signing. Pogba told French channel Telefoot: “watch this space”.

Griezmann’s release clause is £85 million, meaning he wouldn’t break the transfer record we set last summer when signing Pogba.
