Manchester United and Chelsea remain in contention to sign Barcelona forward Antoine Griezmann, according to reports in the Catalan media.

Barca were hopeful of getting the Frenchman’s £294,000 a week salary off the wage bill by including him in a swap deal for Atletico Madrid’s Saul Niguez.

However, talks over the part-exchange offer collapsed after both players refused to take a pay cut, while Atletico also rejected a request to pay €20m (£17m) (in addition to Niguez), to secure Griezmann’s services.

It leaves Barcelona in a tricky situation. They need to offload the France international but they are not sure who would be willing to take on his sizeable wages.

United are said to be open to taking Griezmann but only on certain conditions, which likely means that the 30-year-old would need to lower his salary demands. Chelsea are also named as an option, but there is now talk about a possible swap deal with Juventus involving Paulo Dybala.
