For the Manchester fans in the Transfer Tavern, there’s one player they want to see at Old Trafford more than any other…
Jose Mourinho has made a habit of attracting some of Europe’s most prestigious stars in recent years, with the likes of Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas joining him at Chelsea, whilst Paul Pogba – a player that was arguably Europe’s most in-demand – joined Mourinho at Man Utd in a landmark deal last summer.
The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping that the Portuguese boss will be able to pull off another coup over the coming months – with Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Greizmann the name on everybody’s lips.
It would appear as though Mourinho is doing all he can to land the talented Frenchman, with the Sun reporting that the Frenchman will be offered a sizeable salary should he make the move – with Man Utd reportedly willing to offer to match his salary with Paul Pogbas; a whopping £220,000 per week.
Whilst there is no mention of a deal between Man Utd and Atletico Madrid, it would appear that the Red Devils are willing to do all they can to convince Griezmann himself to make the move – with the transfer fee seemingly being considered less of an issue.
There is no doubting that the Frenchman would be a star at Old Trafford, with Griezmann building quite the impressive CV over the last few years. He has scored 22 goals in each of the last 2 La Liga seasons, with a solid 6 scored so far this season.
Reports emerging late last year from French outlet Mercato 365 suggested that Chelsea were also keen on him, though, so our landlord doesn’t think a deal will be easy to come by for the Red Devils.
