The Daily Mail revealed earlier in May that United are interested in the France superstar but that the move would cost the club £155 million including transfer fees and wages over a proposed five-year deal.

Griezmann would expect to become one of the Premier League’s best-paid players on £295,000 a week.

His buyout clause is believed to be in excess of £80m at the Spanish club. Griezmann, 26, spoke to French TV show Quotidien on Monday night, saying: "I think my future will be decided in the next two weeks."

Asked if United would be his destination, he added: "It’s possible. I would give it a six-out-of-10 chance."

It is understood that a victory for United against Ajax in the Europa League final, assuring a place in the Champions League next season, would significantly boost their chances of landing the player.
