Griezmann has an £86million release clause in his contract, which United reportedly are willing to meet should Atletico refuse to budge on their asking price.

Ronaldo left Old Trafford in 2009, after a successful six-year stint at Old Trafford.
And, because of Real fans booing him, the 31-year-old admitted he misses life in England.
"I don’t like it and it’s not normal that they whistle you in your own stadium. I just don’t like it," he said.
"It shouldn’t be the case that a player who always wants to give his best and give 100 percent for this team when he makes his first mistake people whistle.
"It’s not correct. And when you are on a difficult run that is when you need extra support from outside not less. Sometimes we don’t have it.
"I spent a lot of years at Manchester United and it never happened to me. Not even once. Maybe England is a case apart – the mentality is different."

13:25: Former Croatia international Zvonimir Boban has slammed Inter Milan for entertaining the prospect of selling Ivan Perisic.
The talented midfielder has been linked with a mega-money move to Old Trafford.
But Boban, who made 178 appearances for rivals AC Milan, thinks it would be ‘absurd’ to part company.
"He’s been one of Inter’s most important players over the past two seasons," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
"He’s got energy, and is always dangerous in attack and he’s a serious guy.
"I cannot believe that it’s possible for Inter to want to sell him.
"If you make a decision like this then it’s obvious you know very little about football.
"For me it’s an absurd choice if they believe both tactically and technically that Perisic should not stay in this team."

12:00: Agent Mino Raiola claims his client, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, would like to stay at Manchester United.
Asked if Zlatan wanted to extend his spell at Old Trafford, Raiola told talkSPORT: "Oh, yes. He wants to stay in England he wants to stay at the top and if he sees that he can be a valuable asset for Manchester United, then why not Manchester United?”
However, Raiola continued to warn supporters that lots of other clubs were interested in the Swede.
He added: “We have a lot of offers and ideas and we have to evaluate them. For now, it is important he recovers well and then we will see.”
11:50: Sergio Ramos wants Manchester United to sign Antoine Griezmann.
Real Madrid star Ramos hopes that by selling Griezmann, Atletico Madrid will be less of a force next season.
"If they [Manchester United] take him, if they take him out from Atletico, it would be less of a problem for us ahead of next season," Ramos told Cadena Cope.
"Every footballer is their own world and one must make these kind of decisions. Sometimes they are difficult and sometimes they are not.
“Everyone has to decide where he wants to be, where he is going to be happy. He is a great striker and obviously the top clubs express interest in getting their services. He can decide what he wants."
11:00: Manchester United and Real Madrid target Kylian Mbappe says his summer transfer decision could be swayed by Didier Deschamps.
The Sun claim Jose Mourinho’s side have made £73.5m bid for the Monaco superstar and they're currently 6/1 second favourotes to bring him to Old Trafford.
But their fate could be decided by the France national team boss.
"The advice of Didier Deschamps counts. That will not guide my choice, but it will count," Mbappe said.
"I do not think I will go to his office to ask, but there's plenty of time to think about all this."
