Atletico Madrid attacker Antoine Griezmann impressed and scored in his side’s 1-1 draw with Arsenal in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final tie at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday night, and Manchester United fans have urged their club to sign the Frenchman, rated at £90m by Transfermarkt, to play alongside Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku in a front three next season.
The versatile forward has long been linked with a move away from the La Liga club, but he extended his contract with the team from the Spanish capital by another 12 months last summer, and has gone on to score 27 goals in 45 appearances in all competitions for Diego Simeone’s side.
Meanwhile, the Red Devils are still yet to find a real solution to their right-sided issue with the likes of Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata playing there this season, and Jose Mourinho could look to make an addition in that position during the summer.
Man United supporters, who also want Bayern Munich’s Joshua Kimmich to solve their right-back issue, were quick to have their say on Griezmann’s latest display via social media, and while one simply said “sign Griezmann”, another said “Alexis – Lukaku – Griezmann. Front three next season, make it happen @manutd”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Alexis – Lukaku – Griezmann
