Manchester United have been interested in signing French international and Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann since last summer.
The Les Bleus playmaker is one of the best attackers in the world and Atletico will likely lose him next summer.
According to an exclusive report covered by the Sun, Griezmann was keen on moving to the Old Trafford club last summer but the move could not happen and Barca have now shown interest as well.
The British source have mentioned that the 26-year-old star was offered £290,000-a-week but now he would like to agree a mammoth deal worth £400,000-a-week ($28.2million-a-year) to snub Barca and secure Man Utd move.
In the current campaign, the former Real Socieded star has so far featured in 22 games for the Rojiblancos in all competitions, scored 8 goals and provided 6 assists.
At the moment, Manchester United’s record signing Paul Pogba is the highest earning player at the club, he earns £290,000-a-week and no player earns more than Jose Mourinho, who gets around £312,500-a-week (Star).
The Sun claim that the former Chelsea boss has lined up a move to sign Griezmann in the summer transfer window but should United agree to pay him £400,000-a-week?
