Atletico Madrid attacker Antoine Griezmann is reportedly still considering an offer to join Manchester United this summer.
The offer has been connected with a move to Old Trafford since the beginning of the summer and a possible twist at Atletico could provoke him to leave for the Premier League.
A report in Don Balon claims the Frenchman would be willing to join United if Atletico decided to sell goalkeeper Jan Oblak to PSG.
The 26-year-old was a target for United when David De Gea’s future was gloomy, is being tipped to move to the big-spending French giants and Griezmann believes that would show a lack of ambition on Atletico’s part and would proboke him to quit.
The forward had previously stated that there was a ‘6 out of 10’ chances  that he would be playing in England this season while he also felt that he would be letting Atletico down by leaving now, given their current transfer ban.
However, Oblak’s potential exit could then emit a bidding war for Griezmann, who has also been a major target for Barcelona in the past and would be even more so now after Neymar’s exit to PSG. 
If it happens that the reports from Spain have any form of substance then United coach Jose Mourinho will surely be on watch, having lost out on a potential move for Gareth Bale while Ivan Perisic’s switch from Inter Milan is showing no signs of moving any closer.
