Huge: Manchester United Agree Deal In Principle to Sign Antoine Griezmann!!
Manchester United already have an agreement to sign their long-term target Antoine Griezmann, according to the reports.
The Atletico Madrid striker has been heavily linked with the English giants in recent months and the arrival of his good friend Paul Pogba at Old Trafford has added fuel to the fire. However, the speculations were quashed for some time after the France international insisted he was happy in Spain and reacted angrily to questions about his future.
Speaking to Spanish sports daily AS in January, he had said :”I’m very happy at Atletico, I’m very proud to play for these fans, with these players and with this coach. I want to try and pay back the confidence and care that the people at Atletico have always shown me.
“I don’t like this question, don’t hit me with these questions about my future because for players like Cristiano [Ronaldo], [Leo] Messi or [Gareth] Bale nobody asks them what is going to happen next year or where they are going to play. That’s why I don’t like it when they ask me, either, I’m happy and enjoying myself at Atletico, don’t ask me about my future anymore,” he had added.
However, Yahoo Sports has now claimed that United have continued their pursuit of the France star and believe they ‘already have the basis of an agreement in place’ to sign the striker next summer.
No details over the fee involved have been discussed yet but it is widely believed that the Red Devils will have to offer close to the world record £89million fee they paid Juventus for Pogba last summer to land the Atletico Madrid hit-man. And if it happens, then Griezmann will earn the same £15.8million annual salary as his compatriot Pogba.
Earlier, The Independent had reported that Griezmann’s representatives and United officials were in talks over a sensational deal in the summer. The report had also claimed that the former Real Sociedad striker had verbally agreed his weekly salary and the jersey number.
