Manchester United Prepared to Secure £236,500-a-week Star Signing – Mourinho May have to Wait for Next Summer

Manchester United were linked with a move to sign Atletico Madrid superstar Antoine Griezmann in the summer transfer window.

However, the French international opted to extend his contract due to the transfer sanctions imposed on the Spanish.

The Red Devils are still keen on hiring his services and as per a recent report exclusively covered by Daily Star, Man United are lining up a mammoth bid worth £100million to sign him and they have left the No.7 shirt free for the 26-year-old superstar.

The British source have mentioned that signing Antoine in the winter transfer window is going to be difficult and Mourinho may have to wait for the next summer’s transfer window to secure his signature.

Last season, the former Real Sociedad star scored 26 goals and provided 12 assists in 53 appearances for the Rojiblancos.

This season, he has only made one league appearance against Girona in which he got sent off in the 67th minute of the game.

Griezmann’s current contract with Atletico Madrid will expire in 2022 and he earns around £236,500-a-week (Mirror).
