The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping that Jose Mourinho will make his side a bit more attacking next season.
The Red Devils have been efficient this season, but they haven’t been as exciting as most would have hoped. Focusing more on the defensive side of the game, Mourinho’s men will need to improve going forward if they want to compete with Man City.
This summer, then, bringing in one of Europe’s biggest names to improve the attack makes sense, and they would struggle to do better than Antoine Griezmann.
Naturally, bringing in someone of his quality and his star power would demand a huge fee, but the Red Devils haven’t been afraid to spend over the last few years, and so that isn’t likely to put them off.
An incredible, technically gifted attacker, Griezmann has been one of Europe’s best over the last few years, following in a long line of talented Atletico Madrid strikers.
He’s able to do much more than just score goals, but his record in that regard certainly isn’t too bad. He’s scored 19 goals this season, which is a very good return, particularly in a league like La Liga.
Griezmann has got experience in a number of big tournaments, and is still in the running to win the Europa League with Atletico Madrid this season.
Able to play in a number of positions, the French forward would be able to feature alongside Romelu Lukaku, behind him, out wide from him – or indeed instead of him. For Mourinho, then, he’d be a great option as the Portuguese looks to bulk out his squad with more quality.
