Atletico Madrid reportedly tell Manchester United that they want to keep hold of Antoine Griezmann for one more season.

Atletico Madrid have reportedly told Manchester United that they want to keep hold of star striker Antoine Griezmann for one more season.

The 25-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer as Jose Mourinho's side gear up to activate his €100m (£85m) release clause.

According to The Telegraph, the Spanish side have attempted to ward off United's interest until 2018 but despite their protestations, "there is a growing expectation" that the Frenchman will depart for the Premier League this summer.

The newspaper also claims that the club is seeking out Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette as a potential replacement for Griezmann, although the proposed fee of £60m could "prove prohibitive".

Griezmann became Atletico's all-time leading scorer in the Champions League this week, notching up his 13th strike in the competition during his side's 4-2 victory at Bayer Leverkusen on Tuesday.
