Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann says a transfer to Manchester United is ‘possible’, adding there is a ‘six out of 10’ chance he will move to Old Trafford this summer.

The 26-year-old France forward was speaking on French TV show Quotidien.

“I think I will decide [on my future] in the next two weeks,” he said.

When asked if United would be his new club he replied: “Possible, possible.” Asked to give the chances on a scale of one to 10, Griezmann added “six”.

The presenter replied: “It’s the first time you’ve said that.” And Griezmann replied “it’s the first time.”

Griezmann, who has won 41 caps for France since making his debut in 2014, scored 26 goals this season as Atletico finished third in La Liga.

He was named the third best player in the world behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in the Ballon d’Or awards in January.

There is a 100 million euro (£86m) release clause in Griezmann’s contract.

Griezmann may be well motivated to joining United, having indicated in the past he wouldn’t mind working with a coach like Mourinho.

The chances of his move being a reality may have been greatly heightened as Manchester United defeated Ajax at the finals of the Europa League thereby guaranteeing a place at the Champions League next season
