Manchester United News Transfer Rumours

According to the extremely reliable Antonio Ruiz, who represents Spanish outlet COPE, French striker Antoine Griezmann has told Atlético Madrid that he wants to leave the club after three years with the Spanish giants.

Griezmann has told the club’s hierarchy that he wishes to leave the club this summer and the news comes as Atlético’s number 7 has been linked heavily with Manchester United since the start of the year.

Plenty of sources in England have gone on record and claimed that Manchester United are willing to activate the Frenchmans £86 million release clause in his contract, which would make him the second most expensive football player on the planet, £3m behind his possible future teammate and best friend Paul Pogba.

There have been lots of links in recent weeks regarding Griezmann’s potential move to England, with the most recent one being Paul Pogba saying “watch this space” while performing Griezmann’s famous ‘hotline bling’ celebration when being asked if Antoin Griezmann will be joining the club in the summer.

The French forward has even gone on record by saying that there is a ‘6 out of 10’ chance of him joining Manchester United this summer live on TV, he was also quoted to have said that the chances of him staying at Atletico Madrid are higher with the odds being ‘7 out of the 10.’

With the breaking news on his future, I think it’s safe to say that the odds of his Manchester United transfer have gone up while his chances of staying at the Los Rojiblancos has dramatically declined and his transfer to Manchester seems almost a formality.

Antoine Griezmann tweeted out last week that the rumours that he has agreed to join any club are “unfounded” and that his “direction will be established after discussion with my sports consultant.”

With this story breaking, it seems as if it’s not a matter of “if,” anymore but of a matter of when.
