Manchester United ‘make contact with Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann’ after doubts over Barcelona transfer leave striker’s future up in the air
- United have made contact with Griezmann’s camp over a potential summer deal
- Barcelona chiefs have their doubts over signing the French World Cup winner
- Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to revamp the United squad in the transfer window
Griezmann has been heavily linked with a transfer to Barcelona once again but the Catalan giants have doubts about the benefits of signing the World Cup winner.
The Frenchman revealed last week that he will be leaving Madrid this summer and it was expected that Barcelona would sign him for his £104million release clause.

However the Barcelona hierarchy are divided about signing the 28-year-old forward as some feel the money could be better spent elsewhere in the transfer window.
This has opened the door for United, who according to the Independent have made contact yet again with Griezmann’s camp over a potential deal.
With Barcelona not overly keen, while the likes of Manchester City, Real Madrid and PSG not interested, it could pave the way for United to try and capture the big-money signing of Griezmann.

Solskjaer has a huge task on his hands this summer as he looks to revamp a squad, which would be ready to secure a top four finish and Champions League football.
