The Lowdown: Griezmann transfer rumours
The Frenchman was reportedly on the Red Devils’ radar over the summer, but as we know, he remained in Spain on loan with Atletico Madrid.
Speculation has returned over a winter move, though, with United ‘considering pouncing on an opportunity to sign the player in January’.
The 31-year-old, who was labelled a ‘very creative’ player by his national team coach Didier Deschamps, has scored three goals in 282 minutes of action this season on loan with Atletico from Barcelona.
The Latest: Romano’s comments
Speaking to Caught Offside, Romano said that he is aware of an enquiry from United regarding Griezmann during the summer but added that there is ‘nothing happening’ at this moment in time.
The Italian stated:
“I’m aware of speculation that Manchester United enquired about Antoine Griezmann in the summer, but my understanding is there’s not a lot to it.
“At the moment, the situation is still not clear between Atletico Madrid and Barcelona for Griezmann so there’s still nothing happening with other clubs as of now. Griezmann is 100% focused on Atletico Madrid.”
Griezmann at Old Trafford?
Yes, get him in!
Not too bothered!
The Verdict: One to watch
Therefore, should this bizarre situation continue into the New Year, United could look to take full advantage with a move of their own.
Romano hasn’t heard anything at this moment, although it could be one to keep a close eye on, especially with the transfer expert confirming United’s interest over the summer.
