Manchester United face a threat over the transfer of Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann as Real Madrid still hope they can hijack the move for the France international to Old Trafford.
Griezmann is thought to have already agreed a verbal agreement on a move to Man United, but the Los Blancos are eager to persuade him to choose the Bernabeu instead, according to Diario Gol.
He will have a €100million release clause come into effect next summer, and looks a tempting option at that kind of price.
The Old Trafford club are being linked with a number of attacking players, with the Sun suggesting Harry Kane could be a target, while another from the Sun claims Real’s Gareth Bale is a target alongside Griezmann in a double deal.
However, this might now be all bad news for Man United if that allows Bale to move to the club, though on recent form it is the Atletico front-man who’d be the better purchase.
The forward has shone consistently over the last few seasons, while Bale has had problems with both getting and form.
Unsurprisingly, this means United face rival interest in the 26-year-old, and Diario Gol claim the reigning European and La Liga champions are doing their best to tell the player not to rush into finalizing things with the club.
Bale leaving the Bernabeu could open up a space for Griezmann in Zidane’s squad, and Diario Gol’s latest report claims the French tactician has promised his fellow countryman he’ll in Real’s first-team fold.
