Man United transfer blow as La Liga star makes up his mind on future

Antoine Griezmann keen to stay and succeed at Barcelona

French superstar Antoine Griezmann was linked with a move to Manchester United last summer.

The player instead moved to the Nou Camp. The transfer has not worked out according to plan and the Frenchman’s future is currently up in the air.

He is once again keen on rejecting interest from Premier League duo Manchester United and Arsenal with a view at a summer transfer.

According to Sky Sports (h/t Express), Griezmann is keen to stay at Barcelona and make a name for himself.

With his mind made to stay put, the 29-year-old is set to take part in promoting the new Barcelona kit for next season, which is due to take place soon.

With the Balgruana keen on signing South American duo Neymar and Lautaro Martinez, Griezmann’s opportunities at the club are likely to get scarcer.

A bonafide star at Atletico Madrid, the Frenchman has made 37 appearances this season. He has scored 14 goals and four assists during that time. Significantly, he has completed the full 90 minutes just 19 times.

Lionel Messi is keen to get back together with Neymar. This could see Griezmann get relegated to the fourth or even fifth-choice at the club.

He could have been a star at Old Trafford, instead, he threatens to be another Philippe Coutinho at Barcelona.

The 29-year old’s quality is unmatched, with him having finished third in the Balon D’or race twice.

He also won the La Liga Player of the year in 2016 before going on to win both the Player of the Tournament and the Golden Boot at the summer’s European championships.
