Atlético Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann has revealed he rates the possibility of joining Manchester United at 6/10, following speculation over a summer switch to the club The Frenchman would follow in the footsteps of his idol, David Beckham, if he arrived at Old Trafford wearing the number 7. Today, in his most revealing interview yet, Griezmann revealed it’s possible he would join Manchester United, but his future will be decided in the next two weeks.

Antoine’s brother, Theo, who is a Manchester United fan himself, also ranked up speculation by retweeting the interview and then tweeting a smiling emoji just minutes after.

The two conclusions that could come from this is Griezmann is waiting to see whether Manchester United reach the Champions League through beating Ajax on Wednesday night, or he is awaiting an answer on Atlético’s transfer ban to be lifted, allowing the club to replace him. Of course, United could match his release clause, which is thought to be around £85m, but with his relationship with the club, it’s unlikely he would leave Los Rojiblancos without allowing them to purchase a replacement.
