Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann held talks with the Red Devils officials and verbally agreed about his wage packet and shirt number at Manchester United, according to reports.
The French superstar is now set to join Manchester United for a world record transfer fee in the upcoming summer transfer window.
Foottheball sources claim that Greizmann’s representatives have been holding talks with Manchester United bosses for the last few months and the French striker, who was the top scorer at Euro 2016 is keen on making a switch to Old Trafford.
The negotiations so far have been smooth and according to reports, the Atletico Madrid star has now agreed his wage packet and jersey number at Manchester United.
Earlier, last year Griezmann had revealed that he wanted to play alongside Manchester United’s world record signing and his international teammate Paul Pogba. And now it is only a matter of time that his wish comes true.
However, Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid are currently serving a transfer ban and club now needs to find out whether they can buy or sell players in the summer transfer window.
Foottheball sources claim that once the transfer ban is uplifted, Atletico Madrid will launch a tempting bid for their former player Diego Costa in order to replace Griezmann.
Antonio Conte had axed Diego Costa in their 3-0 win over holders Leicester City after the Spanish striker was involved in a training ground tussle with one of his coaching staff, Julio Tous.
Costa was told to go home and train alone. The Spanish striker was back on the training pitch but he trained on his own as his other teammates were given two days off.
But foottheball sources now reveal that Diego Costa has now made peace with Conte and Chelsea and he was also pictured hugging fitness coach Julio Tous.
