Man United hoping to land key Chelsea target with exchange offer

Manchester United are claimed to be hoping that the offer of Juan Mata to Atletico Madrid will help them land Antoine Griezmann this summer.

The 24 year-old has emerged as one of the most exciting goalscoring wingers in recent seasons, even breaking Benzema’s record of highest La Liga tally for a Frenchman in one season.

Chelsea have been strongly linked with a move for the Atletico star, but no move has yet to prosper, and now Man United are looking to beat their rivals to the star.

Jose Mourinho is expected to become the new Red Devils boss in the coming summer, and having offloaded Juan Mata in his last stint as Blues boss, United are said to be looking to use the Spaniard as bait to land Griezmann.
