Bayern Munich ready to smash transfer record for Atletico Madrid attacker Griezmann

Bayern Munich are ready to smash their transfer record for Atletico Madrid attacker Antoine Griezmann.

BILD says Bayern have put Griezmann top of their shopping list for next year, with chairman Uli Hoeness admitting they would be spending big in 2019.

"Next year we will have to make a bigger purchase, as for now we are saving the money," said Hoeness.

Bayern would have to go to €200m to sign Griezmann - a fee they're prepared to pay. The Frenchman is seen as essential as Bayern prepare for the eventual departures of veterans Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery.

If Griezmann cannot be tempted away, Atletico will turn to Juventus star Paulo Dybala.
