Man Utd Target Splits From Agent To Represent Himself

A Manchester United target has parted ways with his agent after deciding to take his future into his own hands by representing himself.

Man Utd Starlet: I Looked Up To CR7

France and Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann has decided against renewing his contract with Spanish agency Grupo Santos, and will instead turn to his father as well as his mentor Eric Olhats for any advice on his future deals.

"From now, I'm going to operate without an agent," the striker told French sports daily L'Equipe.

"But I will always have the advice of my father and also my mentor, Eric Olhats."

Olhats, who was a scout for Real Sociedad, is the man who gave Griezmann an opportunity to play in Spain when no French side would sign him up.

"I no longer believed (he would make it as a professional) when he was spotted by Eric," Griezmann's father, Alain, told L'Equipe magazine earlier this year.

"I was sceptical at the time, but Eric convinced us to let him go to San Sebastian."
