That’s according to Spanish football expert Guillem Balague.
He says the Frenchman had decided to join the Red Devils this summer until Atletico Madrid’s transfer ban was upheld.
United trailed Griezmann for months before the bombshell announcement that he was staying at Atleti came.
Balague is adamant the forward had his heart set on Old Trafford and will revisit that at the end of this season.
“This summer it’s impossible but next summer, who knows?”
He told Sky Sports: “He is with a team which has played in Champions League finals and also won the league recently – more recently than Manchester United – so he is already at one of the top teams in Europe.
“He is playing with the fans and he will continue to do that with teasing messages but it is quite clear he will consider a move to Old Trafford next summer.
“This summer it’s impossible but next summer, who knows?
“Quite clearly, he was determined to go to Manchester United and it’s just the fact he didn’t want to let Atletico Madrid down while they couldn’t sign anyone that made him decide to stay.
“He had made his mind up to go to Old Trafford though, so we will see what happens as 12 months is a long time.”
