Arsenal transfer news Man Utd Marouane Fellaini

Had Griezmann been certain of wanting to join Barcelona it is likely the saga would already have been resolved.

Arsenal have both Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla out of contract this summer, with the latter signing for Villareal which means midfield recruitments are necessary going into the 2018/19 season.

His global team-mate Umtiti - who signed a five-year deal with Barca on Monday - said Griezmann would be a welcome recruit at Camp Nou. "United have a very good relationship with Dortmund, the teams were talking more closely [but] he chose to go to Arsenal instead".

Will he? Won't he?

Messi, who is preparing for Argentina's opening World Cup game against Iceland on June 16, also believes that Griezmann would be an ideal signing. Fellaini, who now gets £80,000-a-week at Manchester United, reportedly wants an improved contract from the suitors and Arsenal might very well hand him that.

Meanwhile Barcelona are still waiting to get a reponse to the offer they made for the striker.

The France forward has been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona, who could activate the £89m release clause in his Atletico Madrid contract.

Atletico Madrid are seemingly making a huge effort to keep star forward Antoine Griezmann out of the clutches of La Liga rivals Barcelona, after it was reported the club are preparing a bumper new contract for the French global. What appears certain is that Barcelona aren't the favourites to sign him, with a move to Manchester United possible as well.
