Report: Antoine Griezmann on the radar of Arsenal and Manchester United

Barcelona are considering selling their forward just a year after his switch from Atletico Madrid.

Both Arsenal and Manchester United are thought to be monitoring the situation regarding Barcelona attacker Antoine Griezmann, according to Sport.

The former Atletico Madrid man has not enjoyed a great first season with the Catalan giants and a summer sale isn’t completely out of the question.

Sport are claiming both Arsenal and United are on red alert. Just 14 goals in 37 matches for Barcelona have seen them consider selling the Frenchman.

Griezmann checked in at the Nou Camp for £108 million last summer and was tipped to do great things.

After failing to impress sufficiently, however, they could cash in if they receive an offer in the region of £92 million.

Griezmann’s salary could provide both Premier League against with a stumbling block, with the World Cup-winning player earning £294,000-a-week at Barcelona.

The 29-year-old left Atletico Madrid in the summer after five years at the club. His record in the Spanish capital was decent as he scored 133 goals in 257 appearances for the club.

Griezmann typically operates on the left-hand side but he can play through the middle or on the right.

 

Both United and Arsenal are likely to be in the market for players during the summer and a deal for Griezmann would be eyecatching.

Both clubs would probably be able to afford the transfer fee; Arsenal might need to sell first but United would be fine.

Value

Although he has won trophies with club and country, his wages are substantial and could have a series impact on their summer business.

At 29, Griezmann is in his prime but a question still needs to be raised over whether he is worth such a wage.

Only Lionel Messi earns more at Barcelona and it’s easy to see why they might have expected more for their investment.

With that in mind, both United and Arsenal should approach with caution and his arrival in the Premier League would be met with an element of intrigue.
