Atletico Madrid have found their replacement for Griezmann!
Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette will make the switch to Atletico Madrid if Antoine Griezmann departs this summer, per Sky.
Cadena COPE claim the French striker, who has long been linked with a move to the Premier League, will replace his international teammate at the Vicente Calderon should he leave, with Manchester United said to be waiting in the wings.
The Ligue 1 hitman has been in excellent form again this season, scoring 23 goals, putting him second in the charts and four behind PSG’s Edinson Cavani.
Atletico are a club famed for big name strikers, having helped the likes of Fernando Torres, Sergio Aguero, Radamel Falcao and Diego Costa rise to prominence in the past.
Reports in Spain claim he has reached a verbal agreement to join Atleti after deciding now is the right time to leave Lyon. It is also claimed he has turned down big offers in the past.
Griezmann’s future is far from certain too, with an £86million buyout clause in his contract allowing him to leave if anyone pays up, as United are keen to do.
