The dream might come true for the chief director of the Red Devils, Ed Woodward as suddenly they have a chance to bring in Antonie Griezmann from Atletico Madrid. After the end of the previous season, Antonie Griezmann has announced his decision to part ways with Atletico Madrid. It was seeming that the French player would join Barcelona in this summer transfer window.
In a recent statement, the President of Barcelona mentioned that the talks are still ongoing between the two clubs regarding the transfer of Atletico Madrid and the deal is not finalized yet. Accoding to the sources, the club management of Barcelona are not willing to pay the release clause of £120 million for Antonie Griezmann at this moment. They want to negotiate the transfer fees.
However, the club management of Atletico Madrid told that the personal terms between Griezmann and Barcelona was decided after Atletico’s defeat against Juventus in the Champions League. Now, Barcelona are not showing the same interest to buy Griezmann. That’s why they have also called Antonie Griezmann in their preseason training.
The situation is getting worse day by day. Manchester United badly wanted to bring in Antonie Griezmann at one point of time. If they agree to pay the release clause of the star player now, Atletico Madrid will sell Griezmann to Manchester United.
