Our Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern cannot believe they’re not in the top four at the moment and now they’re finding Antoine Griezmann’s latest comments hard to take too.
The Red Devils remain in sixth place in the league despite being on a fine unbeaten run and so Jose Mourinho must be wondering what has to happen to get over that threshold.
There’s every chance they will, though, with many punters here by the bar expecting a busy summer once again for the club.
Griezmann has been linked with the club, too, but he seems to have put the brakes on that for now with him less than convinced about a move to these shores.
He said to French outlet RMC:
“I have a lot of doubts about moving to England.
“With Real Sociedad, I felt that I needed to leave. For the moment, I do not know where that desire came from. Who knows how the season will finish. If it finishes badly, maybe I will ask myself the question. For the moment, it is not relevant.”
Our local United fans were hoping for a better inkling than that that the French international was going to come to their club but, to be fair, there’s no real reason why he’d want to leave Atletico Madrid just yet.
It looks like our local Red Devils will have to sit tight, then, and our landlord thinks this has the potential to be the transfer saga of the summer.
