Manchester United could yet revive their interest in signing Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the Red Devils could be set to reignite their interest in signing Griezmann this summer after having thus far failed to land the 26-year-old.

Manchester United had been relentlessly linked with a bid to sign Griezmann in the lead-up to the summer transfer window and it was expected that the Red Devils would get their man.

However, Atletico Madrid’s transfer ban from signing players prompted the France international to pledge his immediate future to the Spanish club.

But despite that apparent setback, it is now being claimed that Manchester United may not have given up in their pursuit of Griezmann, and that their failure to land Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid could cause them to re-explore the option of signing the Frenchman.
