Manchester United chiefs are “confident” of signing Antoine Griezmann before the end of June at the latest, according to reports.

The Independent is reporting that the Red Devils are feeling sure that they will be able to conclude a deal to sign Griezmann from Atletico Madrid in the coming weeks.

Manchester United secured their place in next season’s Champions League thanks to their Europa League final win over Ajax in Stockholm on Wednesday night.

And the Premier League club are hoping that the lure of Champions League football will help them in their bid to land Griezmann from Atletico this summer.

The same report states that the £85m signing of Griezmann is seen as the first of a number of “impact” transfers at Manchester United this summer.

The Red Devils are likely to be keen to bolster their squad in the off-season as Jose Mourinho looks to assemble a squad capable of fighting on four fronts next season.
