decision from Antoine Griezmann has apparently forced Barcelona to turn their attentions to a reported Manchester United target.
Reports from Spanish outlet ABC claim that Griezmann has informed his close friends of his decision to stay at Atletico Madrid this summer.
The 27-year-old will snub interest from Barcelona and Manchester United and is expected to pen fresh terms at the Wanda Metropolitana.
Griezmann confirmed after Friday’s World Cup warm-up win over Italy that he would confirm his future before the tournament in Russia, and he is expected to make his decision public soon.
As a result, Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde is pleading with the club to make a move for Juventus star Paulo Dybala, Don Balon claims.
They believe that €120m would be enough to force the Serie A giants to sell, and that they would have no problem convincing the Argentine to swap the Allianz Stadium for the Nou Camp.
Dybala scored 22 goals in 26 starts in Serie A for the Bianconeri this season, but speculation has suggested that he has a rift with Juve boss Max Allegri, which could pave the way for Barcelona’s pursuit.
