Antoine Griezmann was linked with a move to Manchester United this past summer and could well be out the door in 2018.

Atlético Madrid are becoming "increasingly frustrated" with Antoine Griezmann after an underwhelming start to La Liga season, according to Dario AS, via Football Espana.

The Frenchman was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United throughout the summer, with Atlético's transfer ban the only thing preventing a potential sale.

However, with the transfer ban being lifted in January, something that will allow Diego Costa and Vitolo play their first games for the club, Griezmann's future in the Spanish capital is once again being called into question.

Griezmann signed a new contract with Atlético Madrid over the summer, earning a hefty pay rise as well as increasing his buyout clause to €200m.

However, the 26-year-old will be available for just €100m in the next transfer window and that has caught the eye of Barcelona and Bayern Munich, while Manchester United also remain interested in signing Griezmann.

Los Rojiblancos are unlikely to sell the Frenchman in January. However, problems with club finances could convince officials at Atlético to sell Griezmann in the summer.

The former Real Sociedad winger has been directly involved in just six goals across all competitions this season. 

Having picked up a red card on the opening day of the campaign, which ruled Griezmann out for matches against Las Palmas and Valencia, the Frenchman has completed 90 minutes on just five occasions this season.
