Transfer Talk: Man Utd to Griez the wheels with Antoine bid
Manchester United are set to make an attempt to sign Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid in January.
And reports in Spain state that the 13-time Premier League champions could offer to triple the 32-year-old's salary to persuade him to make the move.
A reported £23.6million release clause means the fee would be perfectly affordable.
United's football department is set to radically change with Jim Ratcliffe nearing a deal to acquire 25% of the club, a move which will see him take a hands-on approach.
And signing the French international would be some way for him to begin his stint in charge of transfers at Old Trafford.
Griezmann has been one of the best players in the world since returning to Atleti from Barcelona in 2021.
The 126-cap international starred for France in their run to the 2022 World Cup, with no player registering more assists at the tournament.
He scored 16 goals and assisted 19 at club level in the 2022-23 campaign and has already netted 12 times in 16 appearances so far this season.
With the futures of Jadon Sancho, Antony and Anthony Martial unclear, United could soon have a vacancy for a top-class attacker.
