Manchester United have been dealt a huge blow in their pursuit of top transfer target Antoine Griezmann, who is now ready to move elsewhere this summer.
The Red Devils are in desperate need of some attacking additions, and have been looking at some of the best players in Europe for a move in the summer. Jose Mourinho is ready to break the bank yet again to land some star players at the end of the season, and they have been constantly linked with a move for Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann.
The French international, who is among the best strikers in world football at the moment, has insisted that he is happy with life at the Vicente Calderon, but is still being linked with an exit this summer.
According to Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, German giants Bayern Munich are now leading the race for his signature.
It was recently understood that Manchester United are in the driving seat for Griezmann’s signature, and all they needed to do was to qualify for the Champions League next season. But it is now understood that Bayern have opened talks with the 26-year-old, and are confident of landing him this summer.
The Bundesliga outfit are looking to replace aging wingers Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery, both 33 years old. They have also been looking at some star players, but have now decided to settle on Griezmann, and are convinced that they can land him at the end of the season.
