Erik ten Hag's Manchester United have reportedly triggered a €60 million (£52.5m) bid for Atletico Madrid's Antoine Griezmann. United are highly anticipating to sign a new forward during the January transfer window following the termination of Cristiano Ronaldo's contract at the end of November.
Atletico's Madrid Griezmann has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford since his days at Real Sociedad. The 31-year-old was interesting to watch for France at the 2022 World Cup, setting up three goals in seven appearances, however, Deschamps men lost the finals to Argentina through penalties.
The French forward current deal is due to expire in June 2026. However, there has been speculation over his future recently after his side failing to proceed to the the knockout round of the Champions League causing financial problems.
Fichajes reports that the Red Devils see Griezmann as the best replacement for Ronaldo and have gone ahead to table an offer of €60 million(£52.5m) hoping to sign him in January.
Atletico Madrid are not open to parting ways with the forward but they could be tempted if United raise their bid. The French forward has racked up 21 appearances for Atletico this season, finding the back of the net six times goals and setting up five goals.
