Man United would have signed Griezmann

Manchester United would have signed Antoine Griezmann this summer had Atletico Madrid been allowed to sign players.

The French international has quickly gained a huge reputation after producing consistent performances for both his country and Diego Simeone’s side.

Numerous top European clubs such as Paris Saint Germain, Bayern Munich, Arsenal and Man United have been interested, whilst Atletico have remained strong in their stance to keep the former Real Sociedad man in the Spanish capital.

Whilst the likes of PSG, Bayern and others have made other signings this summer – United have held a long term interest with club officials and boss Jose Mourinho keen to bring him to Old Trafford.

And, whilst tentative moves were made towards the end of last season – Griezmann has started the season with Atleti and will now remain at the club.

It could have been a lot different though, had the Spanish club not received their transfer ban from European football’s governing body UEFA.

“Griezmann didn’t feel able to leave Atletico,” confirmed Eric Olhats, the player’s former agent.

“He’s been integral to them and has shown his commitment to the club at a time when they couldn’t sign players. Without the FIFA sanctions he would have gone.”

Simeone’s side are allowed to make signings once again in January 2018 and it is widely expected that Diego Costa will be arriving from Premier League side Chelsea, leaving the possibility of Griezmann’s exit next summer alive.

Having started Atleti’s opening La Liga fixture, the France forward is currently serving a suspension.
