ATLETICO MADRID are willing to offer Antoine Griezmann and Alvaro Morata to Manchester United in exchange for Cristiano Ronaldo, according to reports.
The LaLiga side are still interested in signing the Portuguese veteran, despite a backlash from fans against the idea earlier in the summer.
Ronaldo, 37, is claimed to have been impressed by Diego Simeone’s eagerness to have him onboard.
According to The Times, Atletico would be willing to throw in a forward to help sweeten a deal for Man United.
The Spanish giants are claimed to be open to using ex-Chelsea striker Morata or France star Griezmann to get a deal over the line.
It’s added that Erik ten Hag has now changed his stance on selling Ronaldo.
At the start of the summer, the Dutchman was keen to work with the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.
But he is believed to have grown frustrated by the former Real Madrid forward’s antics – from skipping United’s pre-season tour for “family reasons” to leaving the friendly against Rayo Vallecano early.
Ten Hag, 52, used Ronaldo from the bench in United’s opener against Brighton, before restoring him for their 4-0 thrashing at Brentford.
SunSport revealed last week that a number of United stars believe that the atmosphere within the dressing room would improve if Ronaldo was to be sold.
The Red Devils’ No7 bagged 18 Premier League goals last season and is determined to play for a Champions League team.
He believes that he had a gentleman’s agreement with the United board that he would be allowed to depart if his side failed to finish in the top four.
Morata, 29, spent last season on loan at Juventus – netting 12 times in 48 games.
He got off to a perfect start to the season last night upon his Atletico return – netting twice in a 3-0 victory over Getafe.
Griezmann, 31, was introduced from the bench and bagged his side’s third.
United have also been linked with a £45m move for Atleti forward Matheus Cunha.
The 23-year-old, who scored six goals in 29 LaLiga outings last term, replaced Morata in the 83rd minute of last night’s clash.
