  • Barcelona to hijack Antoine Griezmann's deal from Manchester United Reports

There is bad news for the Red Devils in the Daily Mail with the paper reporting that Barcelona have "agreed a deal in principle" to sign Atletico Madrid frontman Antoine Griezmann.

According to a few reports, the club hadn't given the extension of the player's contract much thought, as they planned to arrange a fresh deal for the Spaniard.

The Sun says Atletico coach Diego Simeone is an admirer of Ozil and is prepared to offer the playmaker wages of around £200,000 ($260,000) per week, along with a signing-on fee if he joins as a free agent at the end of the season.

Ozil's future has been a huge talking point for a number of months, with the German having so far refused to sign a new deal at the Emirates.

China sending envoy to North Korea after Trump's Beijing visit
Song Tao, the head of Beijing's International Department, will head to the North on Friday, Xinhua news agency said. Mr Kim has never visited China, and Mr Xi has not visited North Korea since he became president.


He said: "Some players, as they get older, change their schedule. That's up to him and Real Madrid".

Atletico are supposedly only willing to offer Ozil around £200k-a-week to entice him to Spain's capital, and it would be a massive shock to see the former Bayern Munich man head to the continent for only two-thirds of the salary that he wants. "Our contacts with Arsenal continue and are going in a positive way".

Atletico Madrid failing to reduce their transfer ban saw Griezmann stay where he was, get a pay rise, and see his buyout clause raised to €200m, but with the condition it then returns to the "normal" level of €100m so the Frenchman can leave in the summer. The only other club who have been linked is Turkish club Besiktas.

"Both players looked happy here and overall I hope the situation can be turned around".
