Manchester United splashed the cash to sign Chilean playmaker Alexis Sanchez in the winter transfer window but the former Arsenal star has not been impressive since moving to Old Trafford.
The Red Devils need to further reinforce their attack for next season by securing the signing of a top quality star. One such star linked with United is French international and Atletico Madrid attacker Antoine Griezmann.
According to Don Balon, the Rojiblancos are frustrated with the public admission of Barcelona that they are negotiating with Griezmann’s representative.

The Spanish source have claimed that Atletico are trying their best to hold on to the Les Bleus playmaker but they know that this option is not an easy one and he could depart in the summer transfer window. In such a scenario, the La Liga club would like to anger Barca by selling him elsewhere.
There are many offers for Griezmann and Don Balon have mentioned that Manchester United plan to push to sign the former Real Sociedad attacker by making a huge offer worth £88million (his release clause) and a player.
It is further stated that Atletico would gladly accept that offer as long as Barca do not get their hands on the star (Don Balon).
The 27-year-old Frenchman is one of the best attackers in the world and this season, so far, he has directly contributed in 41 goals in 46 appearances.
