Fuming Atletico Madrid want to sell Griezmann to Man Utd over Barcelona

Atletico Madrid are encouraging Manchester United to bid for Antoine Griezmann.

The Mirror says Atletico are ready to sell Griezmann to United after a massive fallout with Barcelona.

The Madrid club have lodged an official complaint with FIFA over the tapping-up of their biggest name after Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu met the Griezmann family to discuss a transfer.

Atletico would prefer to sell Griezmann abroad in the summer and United can offer Paul Pogba as a team-mate. Griezmann is also a huge David Beckham fan.

An Atletico statement statement said: “Atletico Madrid have presented a complaint about Barcelona for repeated contact between Barcelona, the player and his people.

“Griezmann has a long contract and this cannot be permitted, while the club also considers it could affect the competition [La Liga] in which Barcelona are currently top and Atletico are second."
