The same article states that Jose Mourinho has made signing Griezmann the club’s top priority in the summer as the Red Devils boss looks to further bolster his attacking options.

Griezmann has struggled in the Atletico team this season as Diego Simeone’s side continue to stutter in the 2016-17 season so far.

The French forward has scored six times and has made four assists in 15 La Liga appearances in the current campaign.

Manchester United signed four players in the summer transfer window after new manager Mourinho brought in Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Eric Bailly, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Paul Pogba in the summer transfer window.
