Manchester United have no interest in Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann, according to the Guardian’s Jamie Jackson.
Man United have been linked to a world class signing following the failure to land Pedro earlier in the transfer window and Griezmann looked to be the most attainable.
The Frenchman reportedly has a buy-out clause of around £45m and United have money to spend, as proved by the imminent £36m capture of Monaco’s Anthony Martial.
However, United have appeared to rule out a move for Griezmann:

Griezmann is a superb player but it was unlikely that Atletico would let him go this late in proceedings with no chance of getting a quality replacement.
There is also a question mark over whether or not the player would have liked to have moved to Old Trafford. Griezmann is the star man in Spain while United are still going through a period of transition.
