Antoine Greizmann interested in a move to the Premier League

Barcelona forward Antoine Greizmann would favor a move to Premier League giants Manchester City or Manchester United if both clubs do make a bid for the Frenchman.

However, there have been further reports that the Catalonia side wants to keep the former Atletico man.

Greizmann joined Barcelona from rivals Atletico Madrid last summer for a massive sum of £107m, but sadly things have not gone his way recently.

His maiden season for the Catalan giants so far this season has produced  just eight la Liga goals which since then he has failed to find the back of the net since February making his goal drought stretched to eight  games

A quick look at his relationship on and off the pitch with Quique Setien has been abysmal. It was glaring for all to see as the manager ignored him in the starting lineup of their 2-2 draw against his former side [Atletico Madrid]  on Tuesday as Greizmann came in the last few minutes of the game, despite the fact Barcelona was in dire need of a goal.

Barcelona boss Quique Setien revealed after the game saying, ” it is pretty tricky bringing him on without destabilizing the team.”.

Local reports in Spain have, however, revealed that if Barca were to part with their prized asset, the Frenchman admitted he would prefer a move to England with either of the Manchester Clubs an exciting option.

On the other hand, a familiar face likely for the exit door this summer is the manager Setien as he is not seen as a long term option who could steer the club to achieve its goals and it’s more likely Greizmann will be kept to give another manager a chance to get the best other of him
