Blow for Mourinho as 'Barcelona target €100m Griezmann deal'

Manchester United Antoine Griezmann Transfer News

Barcelona will go out to land Antoine Griezmann from La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid next summer after making the striker their No 1 target.

United had hoped to land Griezmann in the summer, but the 26-year-old refused to quit Atletico due to their transfer ban and Mourinho was left disappointed.

The France international's release clause now sits at £89m, but it is believed that the figure will increase significantly after July 1 next year.

One news source, the Daily Mirror, is running with the inference that Barcelona aim to capitalise on a clause in Griezmann's contract that would see the 26-year-old arrive at the Camp Nou for a realistic fee.

Porsche says both plans require a one-time $500 fee and all membership approvals are subject to background and credit checks. The service offers on-demand access and white-glove delivery to its entire lineup of vehicles for a monthly fee.

That huge hike in his buy-out clause was temporarily written into Griezmann's deal after he agreed to it due to his gratitude over how Atletico have given him a platform to perform on the biggest stages in club football.

The Barca star feels Griezmann could upset the balance under Valverde.

Griezmann's release clause will be back down to €100m next summer, having doubled for the last window when Atletico got their ban, and the Frenchman agreed to stay for an extra year, getting a pay rise in the process.

Griezmann, who bagged an assist in France's 1-0 victory over Bulgaria in Monday's final 2018 World Cup qualifier, has netted three goals in seven games for Atletico so far this term.
