CHELSEA and Manchester United are eyeing a stunning swoop for Antoine Griezmann – with reports in Spain suggesting his move to Barcelona is not set in stone.
The French forward, 28, revealed he will leave Atletico Madrid this summer, with Barca favourites to sign him.
Now reports in Spain have claimed Griezmann is free to move wherever he wants, with Paris Saint-Germain also in the running.
Writing on Twitter, Spanish journalist Gerard Romero claimed: "Barcelona have no agreement with Griezmann.
"He is on the market, PSG and Premier League teams are interested."
Barcelona have long been tipped as the club leading the race to land Griezmann – and he could form a lethal trio with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.
GRIEZY DOES IT
In 2017, Griezmann opted to stay at Atleti during their transfer ban, scuppering his potential move to Barcelona, with Man Utd then also in the running too.
And last summer Barca were again left frustrated as they put the moves on the World Cup winner, only to fall short.
But now, with Griezmann admitting he will finally leave the Wanda Metropolitano, Barcelona are determined to land their man.
It's thought they are willing to meet his £108million release clause in July to beat the competition to his signature.
However, Man Utd are itching to add attacking reinforcements with the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku struggling.
Chelsea too will aim to land Griezmann to replace Eden Hazard – set to sign for Real Madrid – should they miraculously escape their transfer ban.
The Blues are also thought to be chasing Philippe Coutinho, Wilfried Zaha, Marco Asensio and Edinson Cavani.
