Steven Gerrard has warned Antoine Griezmann to avoid a move to Manchester United in the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils have been heavily linked with a move to sign the Atletico Madrid forward at the end of the 2016-17 season.

Griezmann has emerged as one of the most-sought after strikers in Europe thanks to his electric form in La Liga.

Manchester United broke the world-record transfer fee to sign Paul Pogba in an £89m deal in the 2016 summer transfer window.

The Red Devils are facing the prospect of missing out on a top-four finish this season with Manchester United four points behind Manchester City.

Former Liverpool captain Gerrard has warned Atletico striker Griezmann to opt against a move to Manchester United in the summer.

“I think he is one of the best players at finding gaps and space and hurting teams in between the lines,” Gerrard told BT Sport.

When his BT Sport colleague Rio Ferdinand was asked what he would advise Griezmann if he was the striker’s agent, Gerrard interjected:

“Get him as far away from Manchester as you can find!”

Griezmann scored in Atletico’s 1-0 win against Leicester City in Madrid earlier this month before los Rojiblancos were 1-0 winners at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday night.

The France star has scored 15 goals and has made seven assists in 30 games in La Liga this season.
