Antoine Griezmann is a target for Manchester United, say Sky sources

Antoine Griezmann has not told Atletico Madrid he wants to leave, a club spokesperson has revealed to Sky Sports News HQ.

Sky sources understand the France international is a primary target for Manchester United, with manager Jose Mourinho targeting four top signings this summer.

Griezmann recently revealed on French TV his chances of moving to Old Trafford were “six out of 10” and there were reports in Spain on Tuesday that he had told Atletico he was keen on a move.

However, on Wednesday morning a spokesperson for the Spanish club, who finished third in La Liga, told SSNHQ that their forward had not informed them he wanted an exit.

Griezmann has been strongly linked with a move to United, with the odds on the transfer going through improving after the Europa League win over Ajax guaranteed Mourinho’s side Champions League football next season.

A number of reports last week suggested personal terms had already been agreed with the deal set to be rubber-stamped.

Griezmann, though, took to social media on Friday evening to reject those stories while admitting his future was uncertain.

“All the rumours are unfounded,” he wrote. “I’m still Colchonero. My direction will be established after discussion with my sporting advisor.”

Griezmann, who scored 26 goals in 53 appearances for Atletico last season, has a €100m (£86.7m) buyout clause in his contract.
