Griezmann might quit Atleti for Man Utd or Barca in January - FCNaija

La Liga By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 23/10/2017

Antoine Griezmann might quit Atletico Madrid in January and make a switch to Manchester United or Barcelona.

Griezmann has been on the radar of Manchester United since last summer, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain have also signalled their interest in signing the French striker.

The former Real Sociedad forward is prepared to leave should Atletico fail to qualify for the Champions League knockout phase.

The clubs in contention are making contact with his representatives as they are fully aware that he is open to leaving in January.

Diego Costa and Vitolo would be registered for Atletico Madrid in January as their new strikers, Griezmann believes it could be the right time to quit the Wanda Metropolitano.

With Diego Simone’s men struggling in the La Liga and unlikely to make it to the next round of the Champions League, Griezmann could consider his options to switch to Manchester United or Barcelona or even PSG.

The most interesting aspect of the deal is that when the market reopens, Griezmann's buyout clause will fall from €200m to €100m something that will please his suitors.
