Manchester United will bid for Antoine Griezmann, Juventus want Maurizio Sarri, Frank Lampard may return to Chelsea and Arsenal are in talks for William Saliba.
United to make final Griezmann offer
The Sun believes that Manchesster United will make one more attempt to sign Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid. Barcelona are dragging their heels over a move and that means that Ed Woodward can move in with an offer of £95 million. There is also competition from Paris Saint-Germain, meaning United will have to hope that meeting the 28-year-old French international’s wage demands of £450,000 will have to be enough to compensate for their lack of Champions League football.
Paper Round’ view :
Griezmann does appear to be set to join Barcelona, with Gil Martin of Atletico telling press that they have known since March that the transfer would go ahead, but there are so many reports about disquiet about Griezmann in the Barca transfer window that it is obviously worth retaining an interest. It would, however, make more sense for Griezmann to join PSG instead and remain in the Champions League.
