United leading Griezmann chase

Manchester United are understood to be heading Chelsea in the race to land Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann in January.

It had been previously reported that United would consider a move for the France international at the end of the season.

However, The Express claims that the Red Devils could seek to revive their interest in the 24-year-old in early 2016, with league rivals Chelsea likely to make a bid of their own for the talented playmaker.

It is added that United are favourites to trigger the player's £57m release clause with the Blues yet to solve their league crisis under Jose Mourinho.
