The rumour mill at Manchester United keeps on spinning with seemingly no end in sight.
Barcelona star Antoine Griezmann is considering a move to the Premier League, amid interest from United and Manchester City. According to Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo, as relayed by @ManUnitedZone_, the Frenchman wants to play in the Premier League.
After arriving at the Nou Camp last summer, the former Atletico Madrid forward has struggled for consistency this season. Griezmann, who plays as a second striker, has scored eight goals in 32 games in La Liga under Quique Setien. Furthermore, he has earned a below-par WhoScored rating of 6.9 for his performances up until now.
Both Manchester clubs have registered their interest in the 29-year-old, who is currently valued at £86.4m via Transfermarkt, as he could now leave Barca this summer. However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made it clear that Sancho remains his top priority in the transfer window.
As it stands, it is unlikely that the Red Devils will be able to afford both players, as Ed Woodward has warned that the board’s summer spending may be restricted as a result of the coronavirus crisis.
Loads of United fans blasted the “bang average” Griezmann as the news emerged, with one supporter tweeting that he is “overrated” due to his underwhelming statistics this season.

How many more farmer leagues does this guy have to do bang average in before we finally drop this idea? We seem to get linked with him every summer.
