Man Utd hold talks: Massive offer on the table for star striker
Manchester United have reportedly offered Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann wages of £220,000 a week to move to Old Trafford.
The 25-year-old has been repeatedly linked with a switch to Jose Mourinho’s side over the last few months, despite the player himself insisting that he is “very happy” in Spain.
According to The Sun, however, United have held talks with the Frenchman’s representatives this week over a deal that would see him earn the same wage as countryman Paul Pogba, with identical bonuses.
The side are yet to agree a transfer fee with Atletico, who are reportedly demanding that they meet the £86m release clause in his current deal, which still has four-and-a-half years left to run.
The key part of this transfer story is that Griezmann has been offered the same salary as Paul Pogba at Old Trafford.
This would be £220,000-a-week deal and the same incentive clauses. Pogba and Griezmann would be the joint highest earners at Old Trafford.
The France international moved to the Vicente Calderon from Real Sociedad in July 2014 and has since gone on to score 50 goals in 90 La Liga appearances.
