Manchester United are stepping up their transfer plans after securing Champions League football next season, and the first move could be to meet Antoine Griezmann‘s €100 million release clause at Atletico Madrid, according to the Mirror.
If United bring in Griezmann, his arrival could signal the end of Wayne Rooney‘s time at Old Trafford, according to the same publication. The report claims he will leave for the Chinese Super League when their transfer window opens on June 19.
The Telegraph adds that Everton have asked to be kept abreast of developments regarding Rooney’s future as they consider bringing him back to Goodison Park. However, a move to Everton would reportedly involve a substantial pay cut.
