Barcelona ‘Agree Deal In Principle’ To Sign Man Utd Target Antoine Griezmann From Atletico Madrid Next Summer
The French striker was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United ahead of the summer transfer window.
However, a potential deal broke down due to Atletico Madrid’s transfer ban, which left the La Liga club unable to rope in a replacement.
And Griezmann announced during that time that he would stay put at Atletico as the La Liga club could not sign a replacement due to transfer embargo.
Recent reports claim that the French star is set to part ways with Atletico in 2018, with Man Utd still linked with a move for the striker.
Griezmann’s current contract with Atletico has a £90million release clause and the Frenchman is now under the radar of Europe’s elite clubs.
But Barcelona are in pole position to secure the services of the Frenchman as they have already agreed personal terms with the striker.
According to French outlet Le 10 Sport, Griezmann has agreed contract terms offered by Barcelona ahead of a potential mega-money move next summer.
Griezmann has rubbished rumours claiming that he has been in touch with Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho.
But, when asked whether he has been in touch with Mourinho over the phone, Griezmann replied: “No”.
