Antoine Griezmann will “clearly” consider a transfer to Manchester United from Atletico Madrid next summer, according to Spanish football expert Guillem Balague.

The France international was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford at the start of the summer but he eventually committed his immediate future to Atletico by penning a new deal back in June.

However, that has not prevented Manchester United from being touted as a possible destination for the France international, although it would seem that a move before the end of the current transfer window is increasingly unlikely.

Griezmann has prompted plenty of speculation about his future with various social media posts over the summer.

However, Spanish football insider Balague believes that it is quite clear that Greizmann will stay at Atletico for this season, before considering his future next summer.

Balague told Sky Sports: “He is with a team which has played in Champions League finals and also won the league recently – more recently than Manchester United – so he is already at one of the top teams in Europe.

“He is playing with the fans and he will continue to do that with teasing messages but it is quite clear he will consider a move to Old Trafford next summer.”

Manchester United have enjoyed a strong start to the season after having won their opening two Premier League games both 4-0, against West Ham and Swansea City.

Jose Mourinho’s men are now preparing to host Leicester City at Old Trafford on Saturday as they look to continue their strong start to the new campaign.
