Our Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern are still hopeful of a top four finish this season and, according to The Sun, that appears to be getting more and more important.
The Red Devils have not had the best season under Jose Mourinho but the signs have been there more recently to suggest that better times are around the corner.
The club is proving hard to beat, especially, and just needs to find that extra cutting edge if they are to return to the top of the league.
Indeed, signing the likes of Antoine Griezmann in the summer would surely help that out but, reportedly, he’s only going to entertain moving to the club if they qualify for the Champions League.
United are currently outside the top four in this country and do have a battle on to finish in it. They’re going to have to fight Tottenham, Man. City, Arsenal and Liverpool to earn a place in next season’s competition and this story may spur them on.
Our landlord thinks it makes sense for Griezmann to feel this way, too, as he is a world class talent and has to be playing on the highest of stages.
Thoughts, United fans? Let us know below!
