Antoine Griezmann Agrees £88m Switch To Barcelona

Antoine  Griezmann has snubbed Manchester United for a move to Barcelona, according to reports.

The Atletico Madrid striker  has agreed to join the Spanish giants in an £88million deal instead of a move to Old Trafford.

Jose Mourinho had the 27-year-old on his summer hitlist to turn United into Premier League title contenders.

But he will turn his attentions elsewhere after defeat in attempting to land one of the most high-profile strikers in Europe.

Griezmann appeared to be the next in the sights of “Agent Pogba” for a move to the Prem.

Paul Pogba spoke during the international break about wanting to play with Griezmann at club level as well as France.

But that can only now happen away from United as Griezmann is set to join Barca at the end of the season, bringing an end to four seasons.

Atletico Madrid have reportedly try to raise Griezmann’s release clause to £185m, according to Mundo Deportivo.

The French forward has scored 23 goals in 38 games this season but it could be his last campaign at Atletico.
