Man United to miss out on France striker as PSG enter race – report

PSG have entered the race to sign Antoine Griezmann, according to reports in Spain

Manchester United could miss out on Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann after Paris Saint-Germain entered the race to sign the Frenchman, according to reports.

Spanish publication Sportas quoted by The Daily Mirror – are reporting that PSG have identified the Atletico forward as a top target ahead of the January transfer window.

The article goes on to state that the Ligue 1 champions have identified the France international as the right player to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The former Sweden international moved to the Red Devils in a free transfer from PSG in the summer transfer window.

However, the same story points out that Griezmann has a €100m contract release clause to dissuade interest from Atletico’s European rivals.

Manchester Evening News reported last month that United manager Jose Mourinho was hopeful Paul Pogba, Morgan Schneiderlin and Anthony Martial could convince the Atletico man to sign for the Old Trafford club.

Griezmann has scored six of Atletico’s 21 goals in La Liga in the 2016-17 season so far after helping los Rojiblancos reach the Champions League final last term.

However, Diego Simeone’s side lost to Real Madrid on penalties in the showpiece in Milan.

The forward suffered further heartache at the European championship after a 1-0 extra-time loss to Portugal in the final.
