Atletico Madrid Forward Antoine Griezmann Signing Top Most on Manchester United’s Agenda

According to Samuel Luckhurst and Alex Porter of the Manchester Evening News, the France international is friendly with Red Devils star Paul Pogba, which could be key in convincing the striker to move to Old Trafford. Further factors in United’s favour are outlined too:


Griezmann’s boyhood hero was David Beckham, his brother’s a United fan, playing alongside Pogba would be attractive to Griezmann, United are one of the few clubs in the world who can afford him, there would be no competition from Real Madrid and the player gets to send his profile into the stratosphere not just by joining United but by inheriting the No. 7 shirt

It’s also noted that City are also interested in signing the 25-year-old, who emerged as one of the most exciting attacking players in football in 2016.

For both Atletico and France, Griezmann has excelled. With the former, he was the driving force behind a title challenge in La Liga and a run to the UEFA Champions League final, although Atletico lost out to Barcelona and Real Madrid respectively.
