Griezmann Take on Manchester United to Raise Salaries
Atletico Madrid defender Felipe Luis believes Antoine Griezmann is using Manchester United to earn a larger salary and a new deal from Los Rojiblancos.
Griezmann and Manchester United became one of the main topics in the summer transfer market in 2017. In fact, Manchester United reportedly has prepared the number seven back for the Frenchman.
In the end, Griezmann’s transfer to Old Trafford failed. According to Spanish media, Atletico Madrid does not want to lose the player for being sentenced from FIFA, the ban on registering new players until January 2018.
“Griezmann is a man who speaks very clearly, some players often talk when they no longer feel properly appreciated and after that they will get a lot of offers from other teams” Felipe Luis said.
“A player of his caliber would want to get a contract and a big salary, which I think is fair because Griezmann is doing really well here.”
“In the end, for all the talks with other clubs, he always says he wants to stay here and he’s here, happy and likes it, of course he’ll last longer,” he added.
Failed to recruit Griezmann, Manchester United brought Romelu Lukaku from Everton. After his transfer failed, Griezmann signed a new contract with Atletico Madrid that will keep him until 30 June 2022.
