Key Barcelona figures have doubts over whether Antoine Griezmann would be the right signing for the Spanish club with leadership at the club believing money can be better spent elsewhere

This puts Griezmann in a difficult situation after he announced last week that he would be leaving Atletico Madrid this summer.

Reports suggest Griezmann’s entourage have been in touch with United officials, and that a deal is possible.

United would be in a strong position, as Juventus and Manchester City are not keen on signing him.

Antoine’s brother Theo Griezmann who is known to be a Manchester United supporter is seen as having influence over his brother’s move.

Griezmann is also close friends with Paul Pogba, and this deal would similarly have the benefit of keeping the Frenchman happy amid rumors of discontent
