Manchester United 'Front Runners' To Sign Wantaway Antoine Griezmann

Manchester United 'Front Runners' To Sign Wantaway Antoine Griezmann

Antoine Griezmann reportedly wishes to leave Atletico Madrid.

According to Spanish outlet Sport, the Frenchman has changed his mind regarding last summer's commitment to the Spanish side.

Griezmann signed a new five-year deal with the La Liga team in June, a decision which was announced in a documentary on Spanish TV. The striker had been linked with a move to Barcelona.

However, Atletico's recent Champions League exit to Juventus and being ten points behind Barcelona in La Liga, coupled with the possibility that Diego Godin and Lucas Hernandez may both leave the club, is said to have Griezmann questioning his future.

Though Bayern Munich and PSG are both possible destinations for the 27-year-old, Manchester United are said to be "front runners" in the race for his signature. The presence of international teammates Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba at Old Trafford makes a move to the Premier League appealing.
