Stop it! Mourinho tells Man Utd to drop all Griezmann interest

Stop it! Mourinho tells Man Utd to drop all Griezmann interest

Manchester United are reportedly no longer interested in chasing long-term target Antoine Griezmann who is set to leave Atletico Madrid in the coming months.

The 26-year-old came close to moving to Manchester last summer, but after Federation Internationale de Football Association upheld Atleti's transfer ban, Griezmann signed a new deal at the club out of loyalty.

But now according to reports from Spanish news outlet Marca, Jose Mourinho has made a decision to pull out of the race for the 26-year-old forward, which makes it Barcelona's race to lose.

Barca are looking to spend some more of that jackpot they received in return for Neymar, and "are expected to bolster their squad in the upcoming transfer windows and Griezmann has always been identified as a potential target", Metro writes.

It is claimed Mourinho was happy for United to sign him last summer but, unlike Old Trafford chiefs, was not convinced about his valuation.

Griezmann remains Barcelona's top target for the summer transfer window but the blaugrana would resume their interest in Dybala if the signing of Griezmann would turn out being too complicated to finalize.

Barcelona are now considered to be the frontrunners for the 26-year-old's signature next summer, and Marin admitted that the club are powerless to prevent Griezmann leaving should his release clause be met.

"This summer, we will try to do the same again as it took us a lot of effort to get these two players (Griezmann and Diego Costa) to be together at the same club".
