Manchester United To Return For Antoine Griezmann Next Summer

Manchester United will revive their interest in Atletico Madrid superstar Antoine Griezmann, according to reports.

The Red Devils were interested in signing the Frenchman this summer before a transfer ban on Atleti stopped the move from going through, which saw them eventually sign Romelu Lukaku from Everton instead.

It is understood that the Red Devils have shifted their focus on moving for other targets next summer, but the arrival of Diego Costa to the Vicente Calderon could change the plans.

Man United are believed to be a huge admirer of Griezmann and could return for him if he is available, with reports in ESPN claiming that Atleti already sees Costa as a replacement for the French attacker in the central striking role.

Antoine Griezmann is also understood to be open to the idea of joining the Red Devils next summer and has already told the club about his decision to leave despite signing a new deal earlier this summer.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is said to be looking at the option of having a new face up front that could play alongside on form striker Romelu Lukaku, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic expected to quit the Old Trafford at the end of the current campaign.
