Atlético Madrid have identified Manchester United's Anthony Martial as a replacement for Antoine Griezmann, with the striker heavily linked with a move to Barcelona.

Atleti hope to keep Griezmann

Atleti remain hopeful that Griezmann will accept the offer of a €20-million-per-year contract that is on the table. Yet Barcelona also have their sights set on the No.7, who scored a brace on Wednesday evening as Atlético beat Marseille 3-0 to lift the Europa League.

According to Le10Sport, 22-year-old Martial is the preferred choice at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Mourinho keen on Vrsaljko 

He scored nine goals in 30 appearances - 12 of which were from the bench - as Jose Mourinho's United finished second behind Manchester City in the Premier League table. 

Reports in the English media suggest that United are interested in Atlético right-back Sime Vrsaljko, which may make a deal for Martial easier to close.
