A Manchester United hero could have done his former club a huge favour in their attempts to land Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann this summer.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s hat-trick for Real Madrid against their city rivals in the Champions League semi-finals all but guaranteed his side’s progress into another final, while it also kept the aforementioned Frenchman very quiet indeed.
With Los Rojiblancos constantly coming up short against their illustrious counterparts, Griezmann proved unable to make much of a difference at the Santiago Bernabeu in a largely anonymous performance.
That being said, fans online have taken to Twitter to suggest this could be the best chance to buy the 26-year-old this summer. Following a myriad of links over the last few months, Atletico’s struggles to get past Real could see the club look to rebuild and any fee received for the former Real Sociedad man would surely help them do that.
Considering all this, here’s a look at how Manchester United fans reacted to Antoine Griezmann’s Manchester United performance.

I'm sorry folks, but Griezmann is not worth the amount of money we'd have to pay. He just isn't. #MUFC

Ed Woodward's had a good night. Griezmann's ridiculous £150m price-tag should have halved after that… #mufc

Griezmann should just come to #MUFC now… He must be tired of losing to Real Madrid like this

Hat trick and a brilliant assist by Ronaldo tonight.
Assist being Griezmann will definitely be leaving Atletico now#MUFC
