?Former Inter striker Diego Forlan has claimed he has been told by the club they could attempt to sign Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann if Mauro Icardi leaves this summer.
Reports have claimed Griezmann is unhappy in Spain following Atletico’s weak exit from the Champions League at the hands of Juventus as well as being ten points behind Barcelona in La Liga, although he has apparently ?decided to stay at the Spanish giants.
As reported by Football Italia, t
Icardi’s future has been the subject of intense speculation since he was stripped of the captaincy a few weeks ago with it appearing as though Inter may be happy to cash in on the Argentinian forward.
Jose Mourinho has also been ?mentioned as a possible replacement for manager Luciano Spalletti and Griezmann was linked with Manchester United two years ago.
The Portuguese boss may not to want a player as seemingly disruptive as Icardi in his squad, if he were to rejoin the club he won the treble with in 2010, and would see a deal which involved Griezmann replacing the 26-year-old as an excellent piece of business.
