United, City and Chelsea all in chase for Griezmann
Manchester United are leading a competitive race to sign Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann.
Eric Olhats, who scouted and discovered the French striker, claims Chelsea, Manchester City, Barcelona and Real Madrid are also interested in the player.
Griezmann has an £84million release clause in his contract and has been linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent months, however, they are not the only team chasing the striker, and he has insisted he wants to stay at Atletico.
But Olhats said he will listen to offers for the striker, who has scored 16 goals in La Liga this season.
“We’re at the stage of gathering information from clubs who have a concrete interest,” he told French TV show Telefoot.
“There is an unavoidable €100m clause so that restricts the number of candidates. You have United, City, Chelsea, Barcelona and Real Madrid.
“United were the first to come and see us and the most concrete in their wishes.”
