Man Utd cool Antoine Griezmann interest

Mbappe, Lewandowski added to United shortlist

Manchester United appear to have cooled their pursuit of Atletico Madrid's Antoine Griezman. The club will now shift their focus to one of Robert Lewandowski or Kylian Mbappe.



The Red Devils have been hot on the trail of the France international in recent months, but it appears that they may have stalled their chase with the 25-year-old keen to stay put at Atleti for at least one more season.

A report from The Sun suggests that United do have other options in hand with a move for Lewandowski or Mbappe a possibility.

Lewandowski has been a potent goalscorer for German champions Bayern Munich over the years, and his latest decision to extend his contract until 2021 could come in the way of a potential move to Old Trafford.

The club also seem to hold an interest in Monaco's Mbappe, who have taken football by storm through his impressive touch in front of goal for the Principality outfit.

The France under-19 international is likely to cost in excess of £50m, and United could clinch a similar deal to that of Anthony Martial's from the same side in 2015.
