Manchester United are “confident” of signing Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid this summer, according to reports in Spain.

Spanish outlet Don Balon, as quoted by the Daily Star, is reporting that Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho is convinced that the club will be able to tie up a deal for the France international this summer.

Manchester United were heavily linked with a move to sign Griezmann from Atletico last summer but a move failed to materialise as he ended up staying at the La Liga club.

Naturally, his situation has been making its way back into the spotlight ahead of the summer transfer window – and it seems that Manchester United are set to be touted as a possible destination once again.

According to the same report, Mourinho is willing to axe Paul Pogba in a bid to bring Griezmann to Old Trafford this summer – and a swap deal could be on the cards.

Whether there is any truth to these outlandish claims remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure – Manchester United will be linked with a host of players in the coming weeks and months as Mourinho looks to strengthen his squad at Old Trafford.
