Man Utd may have to wait until next season in order to secure vital forward deal

For the Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern, it is essential that Jose Mourinho signs a new striker this summer…

Zlatan Ibrahimovic┬áhas impressed, but given his age – he certainly can’t continue forever. Furthermore, with Wayne Rooney’s future looking increasingly uncertain, it seems as though the Man Utd front line could be about to have a serious overhaul.

One player that the Red Devils have continually been linked with is Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann. Undoubtedly one of Europe’s best forwards, it was a deal that made sense on every front.

However, it appears as though that deal will no longer be possible – with Spanish publication AS reporting that the Frenchman has agreed to remain at the club for at least another year.

A combination of factors, most notably loyalty to the club and Diego Simeone, have reportedly influenced his decision – and it seems as though the Red Devils will have to wait for at least another year if they want to get their man – with the 2017-18 season looking more likely.

This is certainly a blow for Jose Mourinho, with Griezmann undoubtedly the best option for the Manchester-based side. Prolific in front of goal with an electric engine and vast technical ability to match – the Frenchman is absolutely perfect for the Premier League.

The striker has 12 goals and 6 assists this season.

Our landlord thinks that a front three of Martial, Griezmann and Mkhitaryan would have been unstoppable – and he isn’t sure where else Man Utd could go from here. The deal would be vital for so many reasons, not least because he would be a long-term solution to the Red Devils’ attacking concerns.
