Manchester United fans and Jose Mourinho, Manchester United’s manager, has received a boost after the news of a raising issue between Atletico Madrid and FC Barcelona because of Antoine Griezmann.
Atletico Madrid has filed an official complain to FIFA this week because of Barcelona’s president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, actions with Antoine Griezmann where he met with the representatives of the French striker to discuss the move to the Camp Nou next summer.
Barcelona and Manchester United are in an intense race to sign the world-class striker, Antoine Griezmann, who has a £88million release clause, which is possible for both clubs to pay that amount. However, Atletico Madrid is reported willing to sell Antoine Griezmann to Manchester United instead of FC Barcelona.
Atletico Madrid would prefer to sell their main star, Antoine Griezmann, to a club abroad instead of selling him to one of the direct competitors in the domestic league, La Liga. In addition, after the recent issues and FIFA complaint against Barcelona, Atletico Madrid seems to rule out the possibility of letting their main star join Barcelona next summer.
Barcelona is eager to buy a replacement for Neymar who left for PSG, and they see Antoine Griezmann as a perfect replacement. While on the other hand, Manchester United is eager to sign a world class striker as well to solve the offensive issues the team is facing with the drastic decline in Romelu Lukaku’s form, and lack of experience for Marcos Rashford and Anthony Martial.
