Antoine Griezmann has alerted Manchester United to his new demand for a stunning £400,000-a-week deal.
According to The Sun, the Atletico fan-favourite would snub Barcelona for United if the Red Devils meet his freshly set requirement. The English club was set to offer £89 million for swooping the talented forward in the summer.
However, the Mancunian club has been notified that the initially discussed wage offer of £290,000-a-week is way below the standards the French attacker is looking for.

After witnessing huge stars earning their fortune at Old Trafford, Griezmann craves for a better pay, a £100,000-a-week more than the previously set deal.
An Old Trafford source reported: “The goalposts have moved significantly since the first attempt to sign Griezmann. The package offered last year which was agreed is now a lot less than what he wants next summer.
“It might be too much even for us to afford. The club is desperate to sign him but it is an awful lot of money. His people are making different demands which the club might be reluctant to give in to.”
Furthermore, according to recent reports, the United gaffer intends to table an offer in the winter window, attempting to rope in the 26-year-old a bit earlier, in the hopes of fortifying his club to have a better edge against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.
Regardless, it’s understood that the Spanish side would deny offers, if any, in January, even though they are reportedly willing to let go of the celebrated winger over the upcoming summer.
