Manchester United, after a slow start to the campaign, have grown into one of the best sides in the Premier League this season but, with Jose Mourinho’s side sat sixth in the standings, there is still plenty of room for improvement.
With Wayne Rooney not getting any younger and Zlatan Ibrahimovic only a short-term fix, Manchester United’s attack may need strengthening in attack- and Manchester United legend Gary Neville believes he knows the perfect option.
Answering a fan’s question on Twitter, the renowned pundit revealed he believes French striker Antoine Griezmann is the man from La Liga that the Red Devils should be targeting the most.

Prizing Griezmann from Atletico Madrid will certainly be an expensive challenge but Manchester United have the finances to complete such a deal. However, they’ll face a number of opponents in the transfer market to land the French forward.
The 25-year-old is certainly a world-class talent, scoring 50 goals in 90 La Liga appearances for the Madrid giants and netting 14 goals in 39 appearances for the French national side.
