Man Utd set to lose the mega battle to sign world class striker
Atletico Madrid are set to tie their superstar Antoine Griezmann, to a new contract. This is coming after several Premier League teams indicated interest in signing the hit man.
Griezmann has been in top form since he joined Atletico in 2014. The attacker is versatile and can play anywhere across the front line. It is this adaptability to several positions that has made top European teams become interested in him.
Manchester United were rumoured to be very close to signing him this summer, after reports emerged that Paul Pogba has been trying to convince his buddy that the weather in Manchester is just fine.
Manchester want to make another marquee signing after sealing a world record deal for Pogba last season. The Red Devils have fallen down the group of England’s top teams this season, and they are ready to spend their way into reckoning again.
But they have been dealt a major blow after Atletico indicated that Griezmann is in line to be offered a new contract.
He currently earns around £8 million per season, but the club wants to take it to £10 Million and increase his release clause which is already £100 Million.
