Sportsmail revealed earlier this month 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 last 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.
