Manchester United fans here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are surprised at what they have just read in Metro – with the publication claiming that Manchester United are lining up a £32.5 million deal to sign Atletico Madrid attacker Antoine Griezmann.
The French international has excelled during his time at Diego Simeone’s side and it is not a surprise to see some of Europe’s biggest clubs take an interest in the wideman.
Griezmann, 24, can be utilised as a winger or just behind the striker so he would certainly add to the attacking options that Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal has at his disposal.
The publication claims that Chelsea and Bayern Munich are also vying for the signature of the former Real Sociedad winger, however United currently lead the chase to sign him.
Manchester United fans over by the billiards table here in the Transfer Tavern all admit they have been impressed when they have seen him play, with all of them saying they would be very happy to see the Frenchman join the club in the summer.
