The French forward, 28, has long been on the radar of the Old Trafford giants.

But Griezmann appeared to be on his way to Barca after revealing he was leaving Atletico Madrid earlier this summer.
Despite that, after France's 4-0 win over Andorra on Tuesday, Griezmann revealed he might not stay in Spain, after all.
Following the European Championship qualifier, Griezmann said: “As I said, I know where I want to go.
"I am also keen to get this over with as quickly as possible…
"I don’t know if I will stay in La Liga.”
The Atelti talisman famously stuck around at the club whilst they served a transfer ban – despite the advances of United.
But now he has called time on his five-year stint at the Wanda Metropolitano – and has a £106m release clause.
Griezmann, who scored 21 goals last season, had already previously revealed he needs a little time to get his favoured move over the line.
He said: "I know where I want to go, and the sacrifices I have to make to get there.
"I just ask for a little patience.
