Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann rates his chances of joining Manchester United at 60%.

The France international, who is rated as one of the world's best players, has long been linked with a summer move to Old Trafford.

When asked on a French TV programme Quotidien, how likely it is out of 10 that he will head to United, Griezmann answered "six".

And when asked to clarify if he was sure about the point he was making, a laughing Griezmann responded in the affirmative. 

The 26 year old has been Atletico Madrid's leading light in the forward line over the past three seasons since joining from Real Sociedad, helping the club to the Champions League final in 2016 and then finishing as Player of the Tournament on home soil as France reached the final of Euro 2016. Two of his six goals came against Ireland in a last-16 match in Lyon.

Last season, he contributed 26 goals in all competitions to the Atletico cause as they reached the Champions League semi finals and finished third in La Liga behind Barcelona and champions Real Madrid.
