Manchester United to break the bank for Antoine Griezmann

Having already signed Paul Pogba from Juventus last summer for a world-record £100 million fee, Manchester United are ready to splash a great amount of money once again, in order to sign Atletico Madrid star striker Antoine Griezmann.

The French international’s representatives are said to have already held talks with Manchester United this week to discuss terms of a proposed transfer, according to reports from The Sun.

Premier League club are reportedly willing to offer huge £220,000 a week deal and make him the top-paid player alongside his France national team teammate Paul Pogba. Griezmann’s deal would also include identical bonuses to Pogba’s.

Atletico Madrid are reluctant to sell their key man and will hold on to the £86 million release clause, although Manchester United are attempting to sweeten the deal by offering players as makeweights.

Antoine Griezmann is playing in great form this season, having already scored 6 La Liga goals in 15 appearances.

The French international has been included in UEFA Team of the Year 2016 announced on Thursday.
