Barcelona 'agree deal' for Manchester United target Antoine Griezmann

A move to Parc des Princes would see Griezmann link up with Mbappe on a weekly basis

Barcelona have been in contact with Antoine Griezmann for several weeks, severely damaging Manchester United's long-held hopes of signing the Frenchman.

The Frenchman was heavily linked with a move to Jose Mourinho's Manchester United at the beginning of this season, but that changed after the striker saw his club's transfer ban being upheld by Federation Internationale de Football Association.

United fans will undoubtedly be saddened to hear rumours of any pre-agreement with Barca, which could well mean their pursuit of the player is over and could not be picked back up if the player is en route to Catalonia.

But the one thing that could be in Barcelona's favour is that Paris Saint-Germain, who are obliged to buy Mbappe next summer, might find any ambition of signing Griezmann thwarted by the Financial Fair Play Regulations.

Although Griezmann would happily join Barca - and prefers to stay in Spain over moving to Manchester - the Catalan club must now start negotiations with Atletico Madrid. "He is an important player and at an important club and he wants to win titles with Atletico".

Griezmann appeared as a guest on French television programme Telefoot recently, during which he was asked if being a teammate to Neymar and Kylian Mbappe would interest him.

But with the 26-year-old's release clause lowering to £87million on 1, July 2018, Barcelona have opened talks ahead of a potential mega summer transfer.
