Manchester United and Arsenal both have a good chance of signing Real Sociedad winger Antoine Griezmann in the summer, according to a talkSPORT report.

The 22-year-old Frenchman has made repeated reassurances that he has no plans to leave the Anoeta Stadium in the January transfer window, but refrained from committing himself to the club beyond the end of the season.

Red Devils boss David Moyes has been credited with an interest in bringing Griezmann to Old Trafford, following a number of eye-catching performances in La Liga in 2013/14.

However, Manchester United are likely to face competition for his signature from the likes of Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain, with Arsene Wenger and Laurent Blanc also considering rival bids for the wide-man.

Griezmann's buyout clause currently stands at €30million, and there have been suggestions that he'll look to move on in the summer if the right club comes in, in order to further his career.

With some question marks surrounding the capability of Real Sociedad's new coach Jagoba Arrasate, as well as their terrible showing in the Champions League, he could be forgiven for thinking the grass might be greener elsewhere.

It remains to be seen whether he'll end up at Old Trafford, The Emirates or Parc des Princes, but it's looking increasingly likely that he'll leave Spain at the end of the current campaign.
