£88million Manchester United transfer target issues two big demands to complete Real Madrid move

Posted by

Antoine Griezmann is reportedly ready to seal a transfer to Real Madrid as long as they fulfil two major conditions of his in terms of pay and making space for him up front.

The Sun recently linked Griezmann with Manchester United, though it remains to be seen if he’s still a priority for the Red Devils after their signing of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal this month.

The France international is one of Europe’s top attacking players and could fit in at a number of big clubs, and Don Balon suggest he’s likely to choose between Barcelona or Real Madrid.

The Spanish outlet states that Griezmann would only consider the controversial move across Madrid to the Bernabeu if he is paid a whopping £22m a year – bettering Barca’s contract offer.

As well as that, Don Balon add that the 26-year-old wants Real to offload one member of the ‘BBC’ up front – referring to Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale.

None of that trio have been at their best this season so offloading one or more of them could make sense, with Griezmann a clear upgrade based on recent form.
