Antoine Griezmann has admitted that there is a chance that he could be about to move to Manchester United this summer.
Speaking on French TV programme Quotidien, Griezmann admitted that there is a 60% chance that he will indeed complete a summer move to Old Trafford.
“I think we will know (about my future) in the next two weeks. Manchester United? It is possible. Six out of 10 chance,”
However, don’t get too excited yet. The Frenchman was then asked about the chances of him staying Atletico Madrid, to which he responded:
“There is a 7/10 chance”
He was then questioned as to whether he understood what he had just said by publicly admitting that a move to Manchester United was a possibility, to which he admitted ‘yes’.

Antoine Griezmanns brother Theo is a big Manchester United fan and frequently tweets about the Red Devils and he would clearly be delighted if his brother completed the move to Old Trafford.
If Griezmann does make the move to Old Trafford, Manchester United would have to pay the €100m release clause in his contract. He would be expected to take the famous number 7 shirt which has been vacant since January when Memphis Depay moved to Lyon.
Griezmann has previously spoken about his love of the number 7 shirt thanks to being a fan of former Manchester United midfielder David Beckham.
