According to a report by The Independent, Manchester United have second wind in their pursuit of signing Antoine Griezmann in the summer transfer window. However, the move fell off and the French forward came excruciatingly close to a move to Barcelona the following season.
Manchester United are reportedly back in the running to hijack Barcelona's pursuit of French worldwide Antoine Griezmann.
The Atletico Madrid man is leaving the Wanda Metropolitano in the coming months after announcing his departure earlier this week.
With Antoine Griezmann set to leave Atletico Madrid, an FC Barcelona player has revealed he would "love" to see the 2018 FIFA World Cup victor join the Catalan giants. The Chilean global has been useless since moving to Old Trafford and Griezmann would be worthy of our iconic No. 7 shirt.
And Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo believes it would be hard for Griezmann to play for the club next season.
"If it is Barcelona, then what a combination that'll be with Luis Suarez and (Lionel) Messi".
"Who wouldn't be in Antoine Griezmann?".
Meanwhile, Real Madrid were interested in purchasing Griezmann from Atletico Madrid as well.
Thus, Manchester United, according to a report by the Bleacher report, wants to hire the services of the 28-year-old forward to bolster their toothless attack.
They even go as far as claiming some "key figures in European football" believe Man United is Griezmann's most likely destination.
Officials at Barca are now said to be questioning whether the club would be better off investing the £108 million in other areas of the squad, having once again seen another epic capitulation in the Champions League. He has a release clause of £108m, which United are thought to be willing to pay.
