Manchester United are reportedly leading the race to sign Antoine Griezmann

Barcelona are reportedly ready to sell Antoine Griezmann despite splashing out £108million (A$216m) on the Frenchman last summer.

The Catalan giants look ready to cut their losses on the former Atletico Madrid man and a Premier League move could be on the cards.

The Nou Camp giants are reportedly looking to raise cash in a bit to reduce the financial impact of coronavirus.

Manchester United failed to replace Romelu Lukaku after he left for Inter Milan in the summer, leaving the club without a recognised frontman.

Marcus Rashford tried to fill the void before he got injured and the Red Devils were forced to bring on Odion Ighalo on loan in January.

But pressure will be on United to make a statement signing up front in the next window and Griezmann could be just the man.

The striker previously revealed he could have moved to Old Trafford before his Barcelona switch.

He said: “It almost happened once but I was very happy where I was.

“I’ve had a lot of fun in La Liga and we have something the Premier League doesn’t – the sun.”
