The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern were keeping a keen eye on Antoine Griezmann last night…
The striker, who has been a long-term target of the Manchester giants, was on display against Real Madrid in Europe’s elite competition.
One of the fiercest rivalries in European football, on the night it was Atletico that fell short – with a masterclass from Cristiano Ronaldo securing the win for Los Blancos.
Whilst he has impressed for much of the season, Griezmann was in unusually poor form on the night, but it doesn’t seem to have put off the Man Utd fans on Twitter.
Indeed, many still want Jose Mourinho to get a deal done for the striker, with many even hinting that Atletico’s exit from the competition could be enough for Griezmann to force through a move a the end of the season.
Certainly, there is a viewpoint to suggest that they might not be wrong. After all, the Frenchman is clearly one of Europe’s best, and he likely won’t be content to not compete for the Champions League year after year. His poor performance on the night did hint at a player that perhaps is at least considering moving on.
Whatever happens remains to be seen, but the fans are feeling pretty confident…

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

Can't help but think Griezmann will be a step closer to joining us after tonight. There's only so much chasing Real/Barca you can do. #MUFC

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