Manchester United have reportedly put aside £100million as they prepare to relaunch their interest in Antoine Griezmann, claims the Daily Star.
The Frenchman decided to stay with Atletico Madrid in the summer because the club’s transfer ban would have prevented them signing a replacement.
Prior to that, however, he had announced on live TV that there was a “six out of ten” chance that he’d be moving to Old Trafford.
United are now ready to gauge his interest again and have kept the no. 7 shirt free for him.
The number has a special resonance at the Theatre of Dreams having been worn by the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, George Best, and Eric Cantona, and it has been vacant since the departure of Memphis Depay for Lyon.
Griezmann could link up with international team-mates Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial as Jose Mourinho looks to bring in another attacking midfielder.
If a deal doesn’t materialise in January, and it seems probable that it won’t mid-season, then Mourinho will make the 26-year-old his number one target at the end of the campaign.
