Premier League giants Manchester United will reportedly miss out on Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann this summer.
This is according to the publication from the Daily Mirror which claimed that Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona will complete a deal worth £150m for French World Cup winner Griezmann.
The said fee includes the transfer fee and his wages.
It was also revealed that Barcelona skipper and talisman Lionel Messi personally put a call through to Antoine Griezmann to talk to him about moving to the Nou Camp.
Three-time European champions Manchester United and French giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG) have also tried to sign Antoine Griezmann this summer but the two clubs will miss out on his signing to Barcelona.
Atletico Madrid star Griezmann came close to joining Barcelona last summer but he decided to stay with the Rojiblancos and also sign a new contract.
The Frenchman could have left Atletico Madrid for Barcelona shortly after he played a big role for France in their World Cup winning feat in Russia last summer.
French national team star Griezmann will finally get his wish to sign for Barcelona one year later thanks partly to the intervention of Lionel Messi as mentioned above.
