Fernando Torres urges Antoine Griezmann to snub Manchester United and Barcelona bids

Reports: Atletico To Report Barca For Griezmann Approach

Manchester United were heavily linked with a move to sign Griezmann in the summer transfer window but a switch failed to materialise after the France global opted to stay at the club.

The 26-year-old star is one of the best attacking players in the world and will largely improve Man Utd's offene if he does end up moving to Old Trafford.

Atletico Madrid have denounced FC Barcelona to the governing body of world football, FIFA because of the "repeated contacts" the Catalan club has had with Atletico' s French global striker Antoine Griezmann.

Further reports suggest Robert Fernandez, Barcelona's technical director, spoke to with Griezmann's agent with Guillermo Amor, head of the club's youth development telling Movistar+ that "In the case of Griezmann, there are a lot of players we could be talking with, initiating some kind of relationship if there's an opportunity".

The Spanish club have reported Barca to Federation Internationale de Football Association over their alleged pursuit of their star man, who is understood to have shut down an approach from the Premier League outfit in the summer.

Atletico believes these communications violate La Liga rules as Griezmann is under a long-term contract with the club, and such contact is only permitted in the last six months of a player's deal.

"I know that he needs to grow".

If found guilty, Barcelona risk being banned from signing players for the second time in the past five years.

However, he has remained the focus of transfer stories, with his release clause having remained at €100 million when he signed the new terms. Whether Atletico will be minded to sell to the Catalans is another matter.
