Premier League side Manchester United could finally make a move for Barcelona attacker Antoine Griezmann as the Frenchman continues to struggle at his club.
The Daily Mail revealed that this summer could be the right time for Griezmann to sign for the Red Devils since his spot in the Barcelona XI is not certain ahead of the new season expected to start later this month.
Antoine Griezmann didn’t perform to expectation in his first season at Barcelona following his big money move from fellow Spanish outfit Atletico Madrid last summer.

Barcelona paid the €120m (£107m) release clause in his Atletico Madrid contract last summer to sign him onto their payroll before handing him a contract worth £292,000 on a weekly basis.
Antoine Griezmann scored just three goals plus zero assist in his final 20 league games last season to highlight his ineffectiveness.
Manchester Evening News (MEN) had earlier said that the French World Cup winner turned down the chance to be a Manchester United player in 2018 before his move to the Nou Camp in 2019.
The player is still interested in a move to Old Trafford according to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo though the idea of Manchester City is not bad for the player.
