Confirmed! Griezmann Finally in United shirt

Griezmann has been in poor form for Atletico Madrid this season and this led to him being booed during and after the 0-0 draw with Real Madrid on Saturday. After the match, manager Diego Simeone, who himself has been linked with a move away from Atleti, hinted at the possible departure of the French star in the summer, reports Soccer Chat.

Guillem Balague said:

“[Simeone] was talking, of course, about Griezmann, who had been booed by the fans when replaced because they are fed up with him being so open about leaving in certain interviews.

“In the summer he said there was a 6/10 possibility that he would go to Manchester United, things that were unnecessary because the club were always going to give him an increase in his wages. And he now earns €12m a year and there was an increase in his buyout clause which is €200m until July 1, but will then revert back to €100m.

“There was no need to flirt with anybody, but he still did that and so there are players in the dressing room who are doubting his commitment.

“The club, I know, feel that he will leave in the summer, with United and Barcelona favourites to sign him, while Real may consider him too.

“Having said no to a huge offer from United after he had spoken to Jose Mourinho, he will now consider those possibilities. PSG, meanwhile, will need to sell first, but they have also made some enquiries about his interest in joining them.

“Nothing has been signed at the moment with anybody, I’m told, but the club feel he will leave.”
