United to hijack Griezmann move to Barcelona

  United to hijack Griezmann move to Barcelona It has been reported that Manchester United are ready to hijack the possible transfer of Antoine Griezmann to FC Barcelona, according to Calcio Mercato. Griezmann has been performing excellently for Atlético de Madrid for the past few seasons that he has been in the Spanish capital, and has been the subject of much transfer speculation for many a transfer window. He has been reportedly ready to move to La Liga rivals FC Barcelona for quite a while, but it looks as if José Mourinho, former manager of Atléti’s rivals, Real Madrid, is ready to hijack to deal. It is believed that Diego Simeone will be more willing to sell Griezmann to a club who is not a domestic rival, and the prospect of sending him to England and Manchester United may appeal to him. However, United are not alone, with PSG looking fondly at Griezmann and see him reportedly as a great replacement for Neymar, who is subject to transfer speculation linking him to Real Madrid. If he were to move to Old Trafford, he would be competing for a place in the starting XI along with Romelu Lukaku, Marcus Rashford, Alexis Sanchez, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata and Anthony Martial. But with United’s attack already showing a lot of firepower, Mourinho may add the quality of Griezmann to try and push next season for a better attempt at securing the Premier League title.

Atletico Madrid eye surprise move for Adrian .
West Ham goalkeeper Adrian has emerged as a surprise transfer target for Atletico Madrid. According to a report from AS, as cited by Sport Witness, Adrian is being considered by the La Liga giants as they seek a back-up to Jan Oblak. Axel Werner, the club’s current number two, is reportedly set to leave the club on loan in a bid to find regular game time, meaning Atletico will be in need of a new shot-stopper. The report claims that Diego Simeone’s men want to sign an experienced goalkeeper. With just one year remaining on his contract, the Hammers could look to cash in now to avoid losing him for nothing next summer. Vicente Guaita remains a target for the La Liga side, but he is being heavily linked with a move to West Ham’s Premier League rivals Crystal Palace. Claudio Bravo is also thought to be an option for Atletico with his long-term future appearing to be away from Manchester City.
