The
29-year-old joined Barca last summer in a £110m switch from Atletico
Madrid, but his move has not worked out as planned, and the Catalan club
look set to sell.

Griezmann was linked with a move to Old
Trafford in 2017, and United will now weigh up a summer swoop – although
they are likely to face competition from Arsenal and Paris-Saint
Germain.

World Cup winner Griezmann would add huge
experience to United’s attack, having scored 199 goals in 495 games
since making his breakthrough with Real Sociedad in 20009.

This season he has been less prolific, having scored just eight goals in 26 La Liga games for Barca, and 14 in all competitions.

But
United will hope those figures prove to be just a blip in Griezmann’s
career, given Barca have endured a turbulent season which saw Quique
Setien replace Ernesto Valverde as manager midway through the campaign.

The
sale of Griezmann – albeit for a loss on what they paid for him last
summer – would help Barcelona raise funds with which to strengthen
Setien’s squad this summer.

The La Liga giants are believed
to be targeting a return to Camp Nou for PSG striker Neymar, while they
have also been heavily linked with Inter Milan’s Argentine striker
Lautaro Martinez.

Should his price tag put off potential
suitors then the Catalans are prepared to sanction a loan, similar to
the one they did for Philippe Coutinho.

The Brazilian headed to Bayern Munich in the summer for a temporary period, but the deal saw his salary covered.

Barcelona are aware of the need to make cut backs as they prepare to feel the financial repercussions of the coronavirus.
