The Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern would love to see him come to Old Trafford…
Speculation in the Football Transfer Tavern has been rampant for weeks, with the Man Utd faithful preparing for Jose Mourinho’s next big money purchase.
The punters in the Tavern very rarely agree with one another, but they are generally in agreement as to who they would like to see in a red shirt next – Atletico Madrid ace Antoine Griezmann.
The French star’s stock has been rising in recent months, especially after such a stellar EURO 2016 – and his form in Spain is only going to grow that even further.
According to the Daily Mirror, Mourinho has made Griezmann his primary target, and has touted him as the perfect replacement for Wayne Rooney. They add that discussions have taken place between the two clubs, with United putting out feelers with regards to his availability.
This news has lead to quite the roar from the Man Utd fans in the Tavern, with many feeling that he could be the final missing piece in the Mourinho jigsaw.
Granted, the one thing that United have lacked in recent weeks is goals, with Mourinho heavily reliant upon Zlatan Ibrahimovic as of late.
Greizmann would definitely provide that, with the Frenchman having already picked up 6 goals in La Liga so far this season.
Our landlord thinks that he’ll be challenging for the Golden Boot this year with that form…
