Manchester United have moved one step closer in signing top target Antoine Griezmann in the summer transfer window, according to reports.

He’s been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford, claiming he was ready to leave Atletico Madrid in recent weeks to win silverware, insisting there was a six out of 10 chance of him joining Man United.

The Frenchman has a release clause of €100m (£87m) which Man United are said to be prepared to pay, with an announcement over his future set to be confirmed within the next two weeks.

With Man United securing Champions League football following their win over Ajax in the Europa League final, it’ll be a massive boost in the deal as there’s no reason for him not to join.

Griezmann will be looking to finalise personal terms with Man United as a potential move is expected to be completed by the end of June to avoid an on-going saga.

Mourinho has been targeting four key players in the summer transfer window with Michael Keane, of Burnley, and Torino forward Andrea Belotti also said to be on the list as the Portuguese boss hopes to bolster his options at Old Trafford.
