When quality is identified in a player, an interested club usually sticks to the idea of securing his services until the chances become virtually nonexistent.
However, Manchester United don’t seem be one of those clubs, as they have dropped their interest in Antoine Griezmann, with no further intention of signing him.
It’s no secret that both parties have been looking for a chance to collaborate together for some time now, with a switch from the Wanda Metropolitano to Manchester having previously failed to materialise only due to Atletico Madrid’s transfer ban.

However, as per latest reports from Marca, the Red Devils no longer have any intentions of adding Griezmann’s name to their roster. Further, it is also being claimed that boss Jose Mourinho was never confident of the Frenchman’s transfer to begin with.
Nevertheless, it seems like Romelu Lukaku is set to be the main man in the attack at Old Trafford.
On the other hand, the former Real Sociedad man is said to have already agreed a deal in principle to join rivals Barcelona, which means the Catalans no longer have to bother about fending off competition from United.
Either way, the 26-year-old faces no shortage of suitors across Europe, and despite his dip in form, is definitely talented enough to walk into any elite club.
