Man Utd to take advantage of Coutinho transfer and complete sensational transfer

      As far as weekends go, it was a pretty quiet one for Manchester United ahead of their trip to Dubai. With FA Cup progress secured, the squad enjoyed a rare Saturday off. Daley Blind headed back to Amsterdam, Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard wore matching jackets in Paris while Ander Herrera paid his favourite London restaurant a visit.

But, away from Carrington, there was a development which could yet have a huge bearing on United's summer and, indeed, Jose Mourinho's tenure.

Griezmann's release clause stands at £178m until July 1 and it is unclear, officially, whether it reverts back to the original £84m figure after that. If so, expect teams to wait in a summer where the World Cup will take centre stage.

It has not been a vintage season from Griezmann or Atletico for that matter, but the France superstar has nine goals and seven assists to his name this season after enduring a barren spell in the autumn.

The 26-year-old openly rated his chances of joining United as 6/10 before then signing a new contract after Atletico's transfer ban was upheld last summer.
