HYS: Who should Man United target instead of Griezmann?

According to The Guardian and just about everybody else, Manchester United have cooled their interest in long-mooted transfer target Antoine Griezmann.

It has been claimed by a wealth of sources, including Sky Sports, that the Red Devils have switched their priorities away from the Atletico Madrid attacker and towards finding a more conventional centre-forward amid doubts over Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s ability to overcome an injury.

Jose Mourinho has rarely ventured far from his preferred template of a tall and powerful lone front-man throughout his illustrious career and although Griezmann is undoubtedly a talented goal-scorer, he’s certainly not of that mould – and usually needs a centre-forward playing in front of or alongside him to provide that physical presence.

Which begs the question of where United will aim their financial firepower next. They’ve been linked with a variety of strikers throughout the season but perhaps most notably Everton’s 56-cap Belgium international Romelu Lukaku and Torino’s Andrea Belotti – whose contract includes a €100million (£87.06million) release clause.

So United fans, who do you want your club to sign most this summer? Let us know by voting below…
