Juve ready to rival Manchester United for La Liga star

Antoine Griezmann

Juventus have joined Manchester United in the hunt for Real Sociedad star Antoine Griezmann, according to talkSPORT.

The winger is regarded as one of Europe’s brightest young talents, and Manchester United have long been linked with a move.

But reports in Spain have suggested Italian giants Juventus have joined the English Champions in the hunt for the Frenchman, and could well make a bid in the January transfer window.

Real Sociedad are looking unlikely to qualify for next season’s Champions League, and currently sit bottom of their group – which incidentally includes Manchester United.

That means Griezmann is unlikely to stick around too much longer, and if no move takes place in January, then you can expect the winger to depart in the summer.

Manchester United are ready to pay the 22-year-old’s release clause of £25million, but know the interest of Juventus will make the deal more complicated.

David Moyes is desperate to add a big name signing to his squad, after a summer of struggle in the transfer market.

The new United boss came under fire for his failure to sign any of his top targets, besides Marouane Fellaini on deadline day.

Moyes has been told he will have money to spend in January, and has been linked with a host of top players alongside Greizmann.
