European reports said that the Manchester United administration is preparing to enter the race to join French striker Antoine Griezmann, Barcelona player.
The 29-year-old joined Barcelona last summer, at a value of 110 million pounds, coming from Atletico Madrid.
The British newspaper “Mirror” said that Griezmann had previously been linked with the transfer to Old Trafford in 2017, noting that the English club might face competition with Paris Saint-Germain, who is seeking to join the Barcelona player.
Mirror added that Manchester United would be willing to pay 90 million pounds if Barcelona agreed to this offer.
The player who won the last World Cup will be a great addition to the United attack line, despite the modest levels he appeared in the shirt of the Catalan club during the current season, where he participated with Barcelona in 37 games in various tournaments, scored 14 goals and made 4 assists.
The Catalan newspaper “Sport” had hinted several days ago that Barcelona might compromise the services of the French striker to provide funds for the strengthening of some centers during the coming summer.
For its part, the newspaper “Mundo Deportivo” denied the news, stressing that Barcelona has no intention of neglecting the services of Griezmann after only one season, besides that the French player was accompanied by Lionel Messi in the photo session of the new season shirt, which means his stay inside the Camp Nou next season.
