GETTY Antoine Griezmann had a move to Manchester United fall through during the transfer window

Mundo Deportivo report there's an 'agreement in principle' between Griezmann and Barcelona, both sides of a deal want to join forces.

Amongst potential alternatives, Arsenal have highlighted Lyon captain Nabil Fekir, who has been a sensation in Ligue 1 this season, scoring 11 goals in 11 games playing behind the striker.

United's hopes of capturing the forward last summer came shuddering to a halt when he penned a new contract which will keep him at Wanda Metropolitano until 2022.

He is once again being linked with a transfer away, with Atletico allegedly already preparing for his departure, though according to Le10sport it is Barcelona who now hold the upper hand.

If the claims are correct, and that could be a rather big IF, then Manchester United need to get their own wheels in motion should they continue to desire Griezmann.

A January transfer is unlikely, despite Diego Costa finally becoming eligible for Atletico when the transfer window reopens, with a summer switch more plausible. The French forward has also been a long time target for Manchester United.

The 17-year-old central midfielder is one of France's most exciting young talents, with City eager to assemble an elite collection of players at the youth level as well as on the senior team. That would leave Barcelona to pay the clause. This represents a real bargain in today's market when we think about Neymar's £198m move to Paris Saint-Germain last summer.
