Antoine Griezmann: Fabrizio Romano Speaks on Atletico Madrid Ace Joining Man United
- Manchester United are said to be considering a transfer move for Antoine Grizmann
- However, this is unlikely to happen, with the Frenchman said to be happy at Atletico Madrid
- United were said to be willing to triple Griezmann’s wages to lure him to Old Trafford
Football transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has provided an update on the chances of Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann joining Manchester United.
The French star has been linked with a sensational move to Old Trafford, as Erik ten Hag looks to add more experience to his frontline.
Despite boasting a host of star forwards, United have managed just 13 goals in 12 Premier League games this season, leaving them with a goal difference of -3.
This has since sparked the need for another prolific striker, with reports claiming United are looking in the direction of Griezmann to solve their challenges in front of the goal.

However, the Red Devils seemingly have no chance of landing the France international.
This is according to Romano, who has disclosed that the 32-year-old has no intention of leaving the Spanish club.
"For Griezmann, I want to clarify that he is not leaving Atletico Madrid," he said. From what I am told, he is in love with Atletico Madrid - the city, the fans, his teammates, the coach [Diego] Simeone. He is not leaving," Sportbible quoted Romano as saying.
"He was approached by Saudi clubs in the summer and he decided to reject them, not even to negotiate because he was in love with life at Atletico. I don’t think he is going to be tempted by any offers from around Europe, especially in January," the Italian journalist added.
