Atletico's Griezmann offered huge pay rise to stave off Man Utd

Atletico Madrid have offered a huge new deal to star player Antoine Griezmann to stave off Man Utd in the summer.

The French forward, who currently has a £84m release clause, is reportedly a top summer target for United.

However, according to TheSunday Times, Atletico are set to lure him with a new deal which will increase his weekly wages from £130,000 to £195,000. The new contract will also have an increased release-clause for the 26-year-old.

Griezmann's agent Eric Olhats said last week: "United were the first to come and see us, and the most concrete in their wishes.

"There is an unavoidable €100m clause so that restricts the number of candidates. You have United, (Manchester) City, Chelsea, Barcelona and Real Madrid."
