Antoine Griezmann's move to Man United will be less than straightforward
Antoine Griezmann's move to Manchester United is 'not cut and dried' and could hinge on qualification for the Champions League, according to Terry Gibson.
"We have to look deeper now because there is a lot more talk in England than there is in Spain," he told Sky Sports.
"As things stand, Atletico Madrid cannot sign a replacement so that surely must influence the decision. Although, if his buy-out clause is triggered there is nothing they can do about it.
"We have to look at where they finish this season as well, whether they finish outside of the Champions League spots – I don't think they will be.
"It's a big ask for Manchester United to try and qualify for the Champions League, I know that didn't deter Paul Pogba but I don't think it's cut and dried."
