Atletico protest 'discrimination' as transfer ban stays

Atletico protest 'discrimination' as transfer ban stays

However, Griezmann's move was plunged into doubt after Atletico Madrid's transfer ban was upheld - meaning they can not sign players until January 2018.

Manchester United have reportedly cooled their interest in Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann, as Jose Mourinho seeks to strengthen his attacking line this summer.

Press Association Sport reported on Thursday that United had cooled their interest in the France global as they seek an out-and-out replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Ryan Giggs believes Manchester United's pursuit of Antoine Griezmann may not be over despite the Frenchman's apparent pledge of allegiance to Atletico Madrid.

The Colchoneros' transfer ban is no good news for many European clubs that have set sights on some of the best players of Atletico.

The 26-year-old seemingly confirmed his Atletico stay on Thursday after tweeting a picture of himself following the appeal verdict, captioning it: "Now more than ever".

Griezmann rated his chances of a move to Manchester United as "six out of ten" last month before the Atletico striker took to Twitter to play down the transfer speculation. Gareth Bale is expected by many in the Spanish media to be sold by Real Madrid this summer.

The Spanish club were punished by Federation Internationale de Football Association for the illegal signing of underage players, and the ban means that they will be unable to register new signings until January 2018.

In any event, it has now become blear that Man United are pursuing other targets.
