Euro Paper Talk: €100m star informs Man Utd of future; Icardi update

Date published: Friday 8th December 2017 5:24

Antoine Griezmann’s future has been resolved, while a reported Arsenal and Chelsea target has opened the door to a future move, according to Friday’s European papers.



Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann has told Manchester United where his next destination will be, according to reports in Spain.

Mundo Deportivo claim that the Red Devils are still very much interested in acquiring the services of the Frenchman, having been linked with him in the summer.

However, they were unable to push through a transfer, mostly because of Atletico Madrid’s transfer ban. Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have also allegedly joined the chase.

The Old Trafford club have been informed that Griezmann already has an agreement with Barcelona, while Barca have given the green light to complete the deal.

Griezmann has a release of €100million and the Catalan club will pay the sum before July next year, with the 26-year-old himself open to the move.



Mauro Icardi: Striker linked with Arsenal

Inter Milan captain Mauro Icardi has admitted that he could leave Serie A in the future, but only after winning a trophy with the Nerazzurri.

The Argentine spoke to La Gazzetta dello Sport about his future, with Real Madrid reportedly interested along with Chelsea and Arsenal.

When asked about a possible move to Real or Bayern Munich, Icardi replied: “I have already replied to this question many times, it is not the right time to be having certain discussions. Besides I don’t handle these things.”

“Inter put in the clause in my contract, I don’t know if it is high or low, and my intensions are clear. Let me repeat, I want to win something with this shirt.

“In the future, eventually if the moment arrives that an offer were to come or not, everyone must go and talk with Inter, Piero Ausilio and the President and then we will see.”

Chelsea were linked with a £100m move for the Serie A top scorer last month as they look to replace Diego Costa, who returned to Atletico Madrid in the summer.
