Griez­mann edges closer to United move

New Straits Times - - Sport -

PARIS: French in­ter­na­tional striker An­toine Griez­mann said on Mon­day he had a six out of 10 chance of mov­ing to Manch­ester United from Atletico Madrid.

Af­ter say­ing a trans­fer to the English Pre­mier League was “pos­si­ble“, 26-year-old Griez­mann was asked to rate the pos­si­bil­ity out of 10.

“Six,” he said with­out hes­i­ta­tion on French tele­vi­sion chan­nel TMC.

Atletico are likely to be pow­er­less over top-scorer Griez­mann’s abil­ity to leave with a num­ber of clubs will­ing to meet his €100 mil­lion (RM470 mil­lion) buy­out clause.

Griez­mann joined this sea­son’s los­ing Cham­pi­ons League semi­fi­nal­ists Atletico in 2014 for €30 mil­lion af­ter five sea­sons at Real So­ciedad. AFP
