Manchester United and Barcelona are leading the race to sign Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid.

The 26-year-old is one of the hottest properties in football, with some of Europe’s biggest also keen on sealing his signature.

Big spending French side PSG, along with European champions Real Madrid are just two of the sides chasing the Atlético Madrid star, however, according ‘Spanish football expert’ Guillem Balague, it is Manchester United and Barcelona who are leading the race for his signature. He told Sky Sports:

“Griezmann will stay at Atletico Madrid in the New Year but Atleti are working on the assumption he is leaving next season. Barcelona, Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid want him.

“I don’t think he has agreed anything with any club yet. Atletico have spoken to Barcelona about Griezmann but, again, nothing has been agreed.

“The destination will be decided by Griezmann and Griezmann alone.

“He is open to all of those possibilities. At this moment in time, I feel Manchester United are Barcelona are ahead of the other suitors.”

The French forward holds all the cards regarding his future thanks to the €100m release clause in his Atletico contract.
