Man Utd ready to triple Antoine Griezmann's wages and activate release clause fans thought was a typo

Manchester United are willing to triple Antoine Griezmann's wages in order to lure the Atletico Madrid star to Old Trafford, it has been claimed.
Meanwhile, the likes of Marcus Rashford has failed to reach the heights of last season, netting just once so far this term.
The report adds that Old Trafford chiefs have already travelled to Spain to hold discussions with the player's entourage over a potential transfer.
In an attempt to convince Griezmann to join United, the Premier League side are reportedly willing to triple his Atletico Madrid wages, which could see him earn €21 million (£18.4m) per year.
That would equate to around £350,000 per-week, making him one of the top-flight's highest earners.
The publication states that Griezmann has a release clause of just €25 million at the Civitas Metropolitan Stadium, making him a reasonably affordable option bearing in mind the Frenchman's wealth of experience.
