Betting: Griezmann 5/6 to make Manchester United switch this summer

The Atletico Madrid star rated the likelihood of a switch to Old Trafford as a "six out of 10" and we take a look at odds of a move

Manchester United made Paul Pogba the world's most expensive player last summer, but are the Red Devils set to go close to that record again this year on another Frenchman?

Antoine Griezmann has been linked with a move to Old Trafford and the 26-year-old did little to dispel those rumours during an interview on French television on Monday.

Griezmann was asked to rate the likelihood of a move to United out of 10 and responded "six", though he also claimed that he was a "seven" to remain at Atletico Madrid. He also added that a decision would be made in the next couple of weeks.

Paddy Power offer 5/6 (1.83) that the France international is a Manchester United player by 1st September 2017, making them favourites in that particular market. There's also a market on United's next signing, where Griezmann is 11/2 (6.50) with the same firm.

Diego Simeone has announced that he is going to remain in charge of Atleti, who are due to move into a new stadium ahead of next season's campaign getting underway and the Argentine boss will want to keep his star players at the club.

Much may depend on the result of Wednesday's Europa League final in Stockholm. After missing out on qualification via the Premier League, Mourinho's men are 4/5 (1.80) to beat Ajax in 90 minutes and secure a spot in Europe's premier club competition. That said, Pogba is a perfect example of the financial lure of one of the world's biggest teams, even if Champions League football is not on the cards for next year.

Arsenal and Real Madrid are both rated as 9/1 (10.0) chances to sign Griezmann in the next transfer window, although the player ruled out a move to the Bernabeu, saying it would be "impossible" to move across the city and play for Atleti's rivals. PSG are rated as 10/1 (11.0) chances ahead of Chelsea (20/1) and Manchester City (33/1).

Another big factor in any potential dealings is the ban imposed on the Spanish club for breaking rules regarding the signing of players under 16. That's a ruling that the La Liga side are appealing in the Court of Arbitration for Sport and a ruling is expected soon.

Lyon president John Michel Aulas revealed that there was a verbal agreement in place for Alexandre Lacazette to move to Atletico Madrid, something rated as a 8/15 (1.53) chance with Paddy Power, although Griezmann denied any such deal would have an impact on his future.
