Manchester United will not make a move for Antoine Griezmann this summer – report

Manchester United have cooled their interest in Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann, according to reports.

He was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford after claiming there was a six out of 10 chance of him making the move this summer as he prepared himself to leave Atletico and win silverware.

Jose Mourinho was said to be happy to trigger his 100m euro (£87m) release clause, however, reports now claim the 26-year-old is no longer a priority at Old Trafford.

The long-term injury to Zlatan Ibrahimovic has forced the club to change their priorities this summer, with big doubts over his future at the club as his contract expires at the end of the month.

Although no decision has been made at this time, he is still set to miss the start of the season with an injury there are concerns over offering a new deal.

United are now on the lookout for a new main striker rather than a number 10, believing they already have enough players to fill that role.

Atletico have had their transfer ban upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport which means they would not be able to replace Griezmann until January should he leave this summer.
