Antoine Griezmann would demand wages of £400,000 a week to turn down Barcelona and instead sign for Manchester United, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is reporting that Manchester United have “lined up” the France international to join the Red Devils in an £89m deal in the summer transfer window.

The same story says that Griezmann was indeed keen on a transfer to Manchester United last summer but Barcelona have since shown an interest in the 26-year-old.

And it is also claimed that Manchester United have now been informed that their proposed wage offer of £290,000 a week is a long way short of what Griezmann wants.

The same story says that Atletico Madrid would almost certainly reject any offers for Griezmann this month but are “willing” to part company with the attacker in the summer transfer window.

Griezmann has scored five goals and made four assists in 15 La Liga games for Atletico Madrid so far this season.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are currently preparing for their Premier League clash against Stoke City at Old Trafford on Monday night.

The Red Devils are in second place in the table and 15 points behind leaders Manchester City after 22 games.
