MANCHESTER UNITED want to make a last-gasp bid to hijack Antoine Griezmann’s move to Barcelona.

And the Red Devils are prepared to smash their transfer record by offering Atletico Madrid £95million for the striker.

Barca appeared close to landing the France World Cup star – but their failure to make an official move has opened the door to United.

And club chiefs could now swoop as they prepare for Belgian hitman Romelu Lukaku and current £89m signing Paul Pogba to leave.

Griezmann, 28, gave the Old Trafford outfit hope when he claimed that his future may now be away from Spain.

Speaking after France’s 4-0 Euro 2020 qualifying win in Andorra on Tuesday, he said: “I don’t know if I will stay in La Liga.

“I know where I want to go. I am also keen to get this over with as quickly as possible.”

Griezmann antagonised Atletico last month by announcing he planned to join Barca this summer.

I know where I want to go. I am also keen to get this over with as quickly as possible.

But he was left hanging as the Catalan giants pursued a possible Nou Camp return for Paris Saint- Germain star Neymar.

That has given United encouragement, although they are fully aware that not being able to offer Griezmann Champions League football next term is a significant problem.

But they are willing to pay his transfer fee and meet his staggering wage demands of around £450,000 per week.

PSG are also interested in bringing the striker back home to France.

That puts United under pressure to find a way of persuading Griezmann he should spearhead an Old Trafford revolution under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
