Manchester United and Arsenal face hefty competition in race for 5ft 9 attacker

Griezmann.jpgFans of Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea here in the Transfer Tavern are not feeling confident with the news they have read in the Daily Star – with the media outlet suggesting that Real Madrid are keen on a move for Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann.

The Daily Star cites reports from Talksport, with the outlet claiming that Real Madrid want to pair Griezmann with Karim Benzema upfront, and this is something that has got our landlord here in the Tavern licking his lips!

The 24-year-old former Real Sociedad forward has excelled during his time at Atletico Madrid, and it is no surprise to see a plethora of teams keen on a deal for the Frenchman.

Our resident Manchester United fans are pretty demoralised about this news, with them all admitting they would have loved to have seen the 5ft 9 man plying his trade at Old Trafford!

Meanwhile, a few Gooners enjoying a pint in the corner of the Tavern feel that Giroud and Griezmann would have been a superb partnership upfront!
