Sky Sport reported that Bayern are interested in activating the attacker’s €100 million release clause next summer and Salihamidzic has not dismissed the prospect.

Asked if the club have decided to move for Griezmann a third time, the former Germany international midfielder told Sky Sport: “Not yet. We have lots of time to think about that.”

The 26-year-old has scored only three goals this season for Diego Simeone's men.
