Antoine Griezmann has reportedly agreed personal terms with Barcelona

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.
