There’s a new name in the hunt to sign Antoine Griezmann.
And it really won’t sit well with Manchester United fans.
According to most bookmakers, Liverpool are now the favourites to land the French star from Atletico Madrid.
Griezmann has long been touted as United’s number one target but after he failed to make the move to Old Trafford last summer, other clubs have crept into the picture.
Barcelona are also firm admirers of the Atletico striker, but it is now Liverpool who seem to have stolen on a march on them from absolutely nowhere.
Sky Bet have the Reds as front runners to get the deal done, going as low as 7/2 to sign before the end of the summer transfer window:
Considering United and Barcelona are at 14/1 that’s quite some difference.
Liverpool are armed with a serious war chest after the £145m sale of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona and have got fans purring about a ‘mystery target’.
So is Griezmann their mystery man?
The Frenchman is almost certain to leave Atletico this summer with a rumoured release clause of £92m.
