Man United fans want club to sign Griezmann after Europa League final brace

Atletico Madrid attacker Antoine Griezmann scored twice as Atletico Madrid beat Marseille 3-0 in the Europa League final on Wednesday night, and Manchester United fans have urged their club to sign the France international, rated at £90m by Transfermarkt.

The 27-year-old lined up alongside Diego Costa up top for the La Liga outfit, and he played a huge part in them winning the trophy with a goal in either half – taking his tally for the season to 29 goals in 48 appearances in all competitions, including 15 assists.

While Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho has Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku available to him, the fact that Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford look to have fallen slightly out of favour suggest he could be in the market for another forward during the close season.

Man United supporters, who have predicted what the 2017/18 campaign holds for Timothy Fosu-Mensah, were quick to have their say on Griezmann’s latest display via social media, and while one said “swap him for Martial”, another described him as the “perfect Mourinho striker”.
