Barcelona eyeing Man UTD target Antoine Griezmann transfer amid Neymar to PSG rumours

Barcelona could look to sign Atletico Madrid star and Manchester United target Antoine Griezmann as they search for a replacement for PSG-bound Neymar.

The Catalan giants have already been linked with a number of big names amid speculation that Neymar is edging closer to a stunning world-record move to the French capital, including Paulo Dybala and Eden Hazard.

However, Griezmann could also be on the agenda after already finding himself the centre of much transfer talk throughout this summer.

The France international was initially a priority target for United before Atletico’s transfer ban seemed to kill the Red Devils’ hopes of luring him away from the Vicente Calderon.

Barca could be ready to test the waters again, however, as they reportedly weigh up an offer in the region of £89million, according to Marca.

It seems unlikely that Atletico would sanction the sale of such an important player when they cannot register a replacement until January, though they have been linked with a move for Chelsea’s Diego Costa up front.

Still, having kept hold of Griezmann amid interest from United, the Spanish giants surely won’t now buckle and let the 26-year-old move to one of their big La Liga title rivals.
