Such is the modern world that Instagram posts and transfer rumours go hand in hand.
Antoine Griezmann looks like he’s staying at Atletico Madrid for a long while, if his latest social media activity is anything to go by.
The French international striker shared a photo of him in the club’s famous red and white stripes, with the words “and now more than ever” captioned alongside.
Rmours have continued for months surrounding Griezmann’s future, with Manchester United among a host of Europe’s top clubs interested in signing him.
But with Atletico’s transfer ban upheld today and them unable to replace their stars, United may well have to switch their attentions elsewhere with regards to striking targets.
With the long-term future of the injured Zlatan Ibrahimovic unclear, Jose Mourinho and the club now believe they need to target a central striker.
Atletico have had their transfer ban upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
The club would not be able to sign a replacement for Griezmann until January – pushing his price even higher.
The BBC report that 26-year-old is no longer a priority for the club.
Griezmann had been the club’s top target after another stunning season, with United weighing up whether to trigger his £87million release clause.
But now that Ibrahimovic is injured – his serious ACL injury could leave him out until 2018 – United have switched focus.
The squad has enough No 10s without needing to add 26-goal Griezmann who has played as a centre-forward but has been more effective deeper.
Mourinho may want a more traditional striker to replace Zlatan, with the club unlikely to extend his contract.
United have also been linked with Alvaro Morata and Kylian Mbappe this week.
