The Frenchman has developed into one of the very best players in La Liga outside of Real Madrid and Barcelona, and was key in his side’s shock Champions League qualification-winning campaign last term.
Griezmann is set to feature in this week’s European clash with United, in what could be a tricky tie for the Premier League champions.
The 22-year-old – who is seen as one of Sociedad’s key man for the fixture – has confessed that the Red Devils are one of a number of teams watching him, and that Old Trafford idol Ryan Giggs is one of his role models.
“I know that some English clubs are looking at me and Manchester United is on that list. It’s nice to hear that but it doesn’t influence my work,” Griezmann said.
Griezmann, who has come up through the junior ranks at Real Sociedad, added: “Ryan Giggs is one of my football heroes. But now Wayne Rooney to me is the main man at Manchester United.”
Griezmann has long been linked with a move away from the Spanish side, and could be the subject of serious offers this winter.
