Man Utd Transfer News: Red Devils interested in signing Barcelona forward in the summer and the Spanish side are open to selling.
Manchester United are yet to replace Romelu Lukaku since his departure to Inter Milan last summer. Anthony Martial has since shouldered the responsibility and done fairly well. However, the club will look to add to their options in the summer.
Barcelona’s Antoine Griezmann is a name who is now being liked with the Red Devils. According to Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo, United are open to make a move for the 29-year old and Barcelona are more than willing to allow the Frenchman to leave Camp Nou.
Griezmann joined the Catalan outfit for a mammoth €120 million. However, he has failed to make a desired impact at the club so far. Bought in as yet another replacement for Neymar, the World Cup winner has only scored 8 goals in his time with the club.
New Boss Quique Setien is reportedly interested in Lautaro Martinez from Inter Milan and will allow the Frenchman to leave in order to free up funds.
United on the other hand, are looking to add to their attack in the summer. They will even offer Griezmann their iconic number 7 shirt. The shirt is currently owned by Chilean Alexis Sanchez. Unfortunately, he has endured a miserable time at the club since his arrival and is currently out on loan to Inter Milan with an exit in the summer looking likely.
Manchester United moved for the Frenchman’s signatures in 2017 as well. However, Atletico Madrid were hit with a transfer ban then. Unable to sign his replacement, Atletico refused to sell him. With Barcelona themselves looking to rid themselves of the player, things could be different for United now.
