Manchester United are vying to improve their attacking prowess. With Antoine Griezmann announcing his decision to leave Atletico Madrid after the end of the season, we can confirm that contact has been made to Atletico to acquire his services.
It is expected that Los Rojniblancos will only accept a fee near to the French International’s colossal buyout clause of £105 million. Hence, with the financial backing by the club for this summer. Ole Solskjaer is expected to secure the deal by making the player agree the personal terms with the Red Devils.
Barcelona are considered front-runners in the pursuit for Griezmann and several reports convey that the player is interested to wear the Blaugrana’s colours.
However, on contrary, few Barcelona players are allegedly opposing the move after Griezmann released a documentary last year, where he openly refused Barcelona’s offer, while the latter was on the verge of signing him. This act by him probably has offended the veteran Barcelona players.
Thus, benefiting Manchester United in the chase for the World-Cup winning star. If the Red Devils manage to secure the services of the player then it will be a huge upgrade in the incompetent Manchester United front-line.
