Manchester United have made Atletico Madrid attacker Antoine Griezmann their top transfer target for the summer – and the Red Devils are ready to spend big on the France star, The Independent reports.
Jose Mourinho’s men spent £89 million to sign Paul Pogba from Juventus in the summer, and they are ready to go close to matching that in order to capture his international team-mate.
Griezmann has a release clause of €100m, which is around £86.5m at current exchange rates, and United would have to match that to prise him from the Spaniards.
A potential transfer ban is currently lingering over the Diego Simeone-coached club. Atleti are in the process of appealing, but if they are successful, they could target Chelsea’s Diego Costa as the 25-year-old’s replacement.
