Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann will reportedly knock back advances from Real Madrid in order to join Manchester United during the summer transfer window.

The France international is regarded as one of the hottest properties in world football after having racked in goals on a regular basis for the La Liga outfit.

Spanish outlet Diario Gol suggests that Los Blancos president Florentino Perez is keen to add the 25-year-old to his ranks in the summer as he seeksĀ to make a 'Galactico' signing.

However, Perez's attempts could be dashed in the summer with Griezmann having already told Madrid officials of his desire to join the Red Devils.

United boss Jose Mourinho has courted a keen interest in Griezmann since the start of the season, and the club are prepared to trigger his £86m release clause in order to bring him to Old Trafford this summer.

Griezmann has previously been suggested to have finalised a £280,000-a-week contract (The Sun) with Manchester United ahead of his proposed move in July.
