The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern have long been hoping for the arrival of Antoine Griezmann at Old Trafford…
The Frenchman is undoubtedly one of Europe’s most impressive players, offering technically ability and an enviable goalscoring record, and with Zlatan Ibrahimovic still yet to finalise his future – a move for the Frenchman has been touted as a dream by the Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern.
It appears as though that dream could become a reality this summer, with the Telegraph reporting that Man Utd plan to activate the £85 million release clause in the contract of Griezmann – whilst French midfielder Paul Pogba has also been doing his bit to encourage his compatriot to make the move.
Indeed, news of Griezmann’s potential arrival has got the Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern drooling into their pint glasses, with the Frenchman’s goalscoring record speaking for itself. He has scored 14 goals in the league this season, and our landlord thinks that that record would only improve when playing alongside players like Pogba, Martial and Mata.
It will likely be all change at Old Trafford this summer, and whilst Ibrahimovic’s future is not yet assured, recent comments hinting that a new deal could be forthcoming at Man Utd have got the fans in the Transfer Tavern dreaming of a striking duo with Griezmann.
