Manchester United grab Antoine Griezmann for £270m

Manchester United has agreed personal terms with Antoine Griezmann, paving the way for his move to Old Trafford.

SunSport understands a five-year deal worth £280,000 a week has been accepted by the Atletico Madrid striker. United will meet the £89million buy-out clause in Griezmann’s Atletico contract which, combined with wages and bonuses, could see the total cost of the transfer exceed £170M.

The France international, 26, is Jose Mourinho’s No 1 transfer target for next season as he rebuilds his squad to challenge for the Premier League title. Griezmann previously expressed reservations — revealed by SunSport last month — about United qualifying for next season’s Champions League. However, he has been given assurances about other signings and an increase in the original contract offer.
