Manchester United transfer rumours: Griezmann deal next year; Madrid on De Gea pursuit; Bale on future; Perisic nearly done

Antoine Griezmann

The French attacker admits it’d be a “low blow” to leave Atletico Madrid in this window after they were stung by a transfer embargo which stops them from recruiting – but didn’t rule out leaving the club in the next window.

Griezmann was the subject of interest from United which ultimately cooled as they pursued other targets, namely out-and-out number nines.

“The sanction of the CAS has fallen,” he said. “Atletico cannot recruit.

“With my sports advisor, Eric Olhats, we decided to stay.

“It’s a hard time for the club. It would be a low blow to go now.

“We talked to the club and we will be back for next season.”

David De Gea

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez didn’t give much away when asked about a potential move for David De Gea this summer.

Reports have suggested that a player-plus-cash deal involving Alvaro Morata would interest United, but Perez wasn’t wavering.

“De Gea is a great goalkeeper who plays for United,” he said/;

“I don’t know where he will play next season because I’m not a fortune teller.”

Gareth Bale

The Welsh winger admits he’s happy where he is as he helped Madrid to their third Champions League title in four years.

Bale was a substitute for Karim Benzema at the Principality Stadium on Saturday night and was quizzed about his future amid speculated interest from the Red Devils.

“I’ve signed a long-term contract at Madrid,” he said.

“My family is happy and I am happy so, yeah, we will continue what we are doing. We are winning trophies and I am happy.

Ivan Perisic

The Croatian midfielder is nearing a move to Old Trafford, according to reports in Italy, with current club Inter Milan sounding out potential replacements.

Perisic has also been linked with Manchester City and Chelsea already this summer, but now appears likely to head to Old Trafford, if anywhere.

Victor Lindelof, of Benfica, could also complete a move before the end of this week, suggest Portuguese reports.
