Manchester City lead the chase for Atletico Madrid's Saul Niguez

Manchester City lead the chase for Atletico Madrid's Saul Niguez

Athletico are already out of the Copa Del Ray and 10 points behind La Liga toppers Barcelona.

The French World Cup victor signed a contract extension at Atletico last summer, committing his future to the club amid strong interest from Barcelona.

Griezmann penned a deal with the Madrid side which ties him to the Wanda Metropolitano until 2023. The midfielder is out of contract in 2026 and has a release clause of 150 million euros.

And according to Spanish publication Sport, Manchester United are now leading the race for his signature. Atletico are reportedly in dire need to sell some of their stars in the summer to raise much-needed funds in order to restrengthen their squad ahead of the upcoming season.

The attacker rejected Barca in favour of staying at Atletico a year ago, and while the latest rumours claim he is considering leaving again, Morata thinks Griezmann will stay put.

Old Trafford could prove an attractive destination for the forward, where he can link up with compatriots Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial.

State Department spokesman Robert Palladino told reporters the United States was "pleased to support these requests". Ryabkov said in comments carried by Russian media, "We will do everything to protect our co-operation with Caracas".

While Manchester United and Barcelona fans will undoubtedly be hoping their clubs can lure Griezmann away from Atletico Madrid, team-mate Alvaro Morata expects the Frenchman to remain alongside him.

"That's right, Antoine is disappointed by this elimination, since one of his objectives while staying at Atletico was to win the [Champions League] in his stadium", Griezmann's sister said.

"It is tiring everyday to read new things about what my brother thinks and what x or y person said about what he thinks", she told L'Equipe.

"The only people who have been managing my brother's interests for two years are myself, my father, Alain, and our lawyer, Sevan Karian".

Griezmann has been directly involved in 19 goals in La Liga this season, at least 14 more than any other Atletico player.
