The Antoine Griezmann rumours go into overdrive
It seems very likely that this was the week where Antoine Griezmann went from being an Atletico Madrid player to a Manchester United star.
For months now, Griezmann has been linked with Manchester United, who should have no problem paying his 100 million euro release clause at Atletico Madrid.
One stumbling block appeared to be whether Manchester United would play in the Champions League next season and that has been solved thanks to their Europa League final win over Ajax.
Earlier this week, Griezmann appeared on French TV and announced that there was a 6/10 chance that he would join Manchester United this summer.
The French attacker continued his push to the exit door at Atletico Madrid by saying he is willing to leave this summer.
And, Griezmann also shed light on how frustrating it has been for him to lose in Champions League finals, and this season semi-finals, to Real Madrid.
Griezmann to sign for Man United within 3 weeks?
Following the Europa League final win, Griezmann rumours went into overdrive.
Daily Telegraph journalist James Ducker announced that the Griezmann deal could be done within 2-3 weeks.
Since the former Real Sociedad attacker is keen to sort out his future before his upcoming honeymoon.
Meanwhile, reports in Spain suggest that Atletico Madrid are hoping to offer Griezmann a new contract.
Griezmann’s biggest Man United hint yet
In the early hours of Thursday morning, Paul Pogba uploaded a video onto Instagram, celebrating on his way home from the Europa League final.
The tag line was: “Next season” followed by two fire emojis and a trophy one.
This post has been liked by Antoine Griezmann – which is seen as a clear sign that the French pair will be playing together next season.
Of course, Griezmann and Pogba are great mates from their time with the France national team but this has been picked up by Manchester United fans.
The comments on this post are full of Manchester United supporters excited about Griezmann’s imminent arrival off the back of a liked post…
