The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are feeling pretty bleak today…
A disappointing performance against Swansea City over the weekend has left those in the pub feeling fearful ahead of a crucial run of fixtures, with Champions League football for next season on the line for Jose Mourinho’s side.
However, a recent report from the Daily Mail could serve to brighten their mood – and it surrounds Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann. A long-term target for the Red Devils, the Daily Mail notes that Griezmann is attracted by the interest of the Red Devils, but there is a catch. It is stated that in order for Mourinho to secure a deal, he must make the Frenchman the Premier League’s best-paid player.
Would he be worth it? Our landlord certainly thinks so. Arguably one of La Liga, and indeed Europe’s, best strikers – Griezmann has been deadly in front of goal over the last few years, offering a poacher-like finishing ability alongside unrivalled technical skill.
What’s more, Man Utd have not been afraid to splash the cash under Mourinho, notably with Paul Pogba last season, and Griezmann could be the final piece of the puzzle – at least according to the Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern.
