In Focus: Griezmann’s French flair would be a big hit at Man United

As reported by The Daily Star, Manchester United are lining up an audacious club record bid to land Antoine Griezmann.

What’s the story?

While United have started the season very strongly, when you look at Jose Mourinho’s starting eleven there is still scope for improvement, especially if they have ambitions to reach the latter stages of the UEFA Champions League.

One man that could provide a massive contribution is French international Antoine Griezmann.

The Star report that Man United are preparing a monster £100m move for the Atletico Madrid star, evening setting aside their iconic number 7 shirt for his potential arrival.

However, the paper say fans may have to wait until next summer for it to happen.

Worth that kind of cash?

Griezmann is undoubtedly one of the top talents not just in Spanish football, but across Europe, with his dynamic performances driving Atletico Madrid’s progress over the past few seasons.

In three years at the La Liga outfit he’s scored 83 goals and provided 25 assists in just 161 appearances, the kind of direct goal contribution that could transform Manchester United’s attack.

Coming into his prime at 26 years of age, he could be the man that completes Jose Mourinho’s attack and ushers in a new period of success at Old Trafford. Working alongside the likes of Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku, the Red Devils could be unstoppable if they manage to get the reported massive deal over the line.
