They will likely have to increase Griezmann’s wages to convince him to the upped clause, with the report suggesting he could earn £235,000 a week.

Atletico managed to keep Griezmann away from the clutches of United last summer, which led to the Red Devils signing Romelu Lukaku from Everton instead.
