Manchester United and Manchester City are reportedly interested in Barcelona forward Antoine Griezmann. The France attacker has sparked interest across Europe in recent days with speculations about his future rife in the Spanish media.
Griezmann has found himself at odds with club captain Lionel Messi and was recently frozen out by head coach Quique Setien. The France superstar has failed to live up to expectations after making a big-money move in the summer and a transfer could materialize in the coming weeks.
L’Equippe reports that the final straw was when the player was left out of the starting lineup in the 2-2 draw with Atletico Madrid. Griezmann came in with three minutes to go in a crucial La Liga tie for the hosts.
The fallout from the game has been remarkable with Griezmann father and brother hitting out on Setien. Manchester United and Manchester City are monitoring the situation closely and could be ready to spring ahead of the summer market.
