Manchester United interested in Antoine Griezmann

The transfer window has closed, but rumors of a move for French star Antoine Griezmann are circulating, with Manchester United reportedly interested.
Antoine Griezmann may be forced to leave Atletico Madrid in January if the club's dispute with Barcelona over the terms of the France forward's loan deal cannot be resolved.
If that is the case, Manchester United will look to take advantage of the situation and rekindle their interest in the 31-year-old after a failed attempt in the summer.
Though this would mean the Manchester club would have'retirees' among its ranks, the club believes this move could be beneficial.

Griezman is in a similar situation to Cristiano Ronaldo, who returned to the club just before the season began.
It took some time for Ronaldo to start matches under Eric Ten Hag, who is clearly attempting to assert himself as Manchester United's manager.
But showing interest in a player who hasn't started a game under Diego Simeone this season and is in the second year of a two-year loan from Barcelona is incredible.
For one, you have a super-super star like Ronaldo and you hesitate to start him in matches or give him a bigger role, but you are chasing a soccer player who has not played more than 30 minutes (or so) in a match so far this season?
Griezmann is still playing for the French National Team and is known for his attacking, passing, and defensive abilities, and has previously played as an attacking midfielder, winger, and striker. In his prime, he was regarded as one of the world's best players.
He was nominated for the Ballon d'Or and Best FIFA Men's Player awards in 2016 and 2018. Griezmann broke the record for the most expensive player in association football when he signed for rivals Barcelona for €120 million in 2019.
