Barcelona might have done something they ought not to have done in their pursuit of Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann and that seemed to be a blessing in disguise for Man United.

The Red Devils are also in the race for the Spanish La Liga outfit player but they were well behind Barcelona in the chase. If the latest reports from Spain are to be believed, then it can be said that Man United will land the Star Player in the coming summer transfer window.

The emerging report claims that Antoine Griezmann is furious with Barcelona and Will no longer seek a move to the Camp Nou ahead of the coming season.

However, it is claimed that Man United are in advanced talks with Atletico Madrid and there are lots of positives so far to make the deal fall through.

Should the Red Devils land the signature of Antoine Griezmann he would come in as a perfect replacement for Belgium international Romelu Lukaku who is reportedly keen to leave Old Trafford.

One thing that is clear remains the fact that Antoine Griezmann would be leaving Atletico Madrid at the end of the season as he has already bid the club and their fans farewell.
