Manchester United fans baffled by link with superstar alternative to Jadon Sancho

Manchester United fans on Twitter have been left confused by reports linking the club to want-away Atletico Madrid star Antione Griezmann as an alternative to Jadon Sancho.

United had been strongly linked to the Borussia Dortmund attacker in the build-up to the summer transfer window, but a lack of Champions League football and Sancho’s mammoth price tag could scupper any deal at this time.

Instead, according to The Mirror, United are now targetting Griezmann who has already declared his desire to leave the Wanda Metropolitano this summer.

A move to Barcelona was anticipated for the French World Cup winner, but the Catalan club appear to be wavering on a move, leaving Griezmann available for interested parties with deep pockets.

The 28-year old Atletico forward scored 15 goals and added eight assists in La Liga this season, but did so playing as a striker or just behind the striker, whereas Sancho notched 12 goals and 17 assists in the Bundesliga from a traditional right-wing role.

Despite Griezmann’s clear quality, many United fans are sceptical of reports linking him as an alternative option to Sancho due to the not so subtle differences between the two players.
