Not pushing hard enough for Griezmann

It seems as though United boss Jose Mourinho is a big fan of the Atletico Madrid and France forward having been linked with an £85m move for the attacker this month, but it seems as though any deal will happen in the summer at the earliest – much to the disappointment of the Red Devils fans standing at the bar.

However, with United fighting on four fronts and possibly sometimes needing that magic spark in the final third, Mourinho could be nuts for not pushing hard enough for the signature of the 25-year-old this month.

While Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been the key man when it comes to goals for United this term, Griezmann certainly has the pedigree to support him well having scored 14 goals in 28 appearances in all competitions for Atletico this term, also picking up seven assists, and it is a threat that would have helped the club add to their disappointing total of 33 Premier League goals in 22 matches this season – the landlord knows they must be more clinical in the coming months.
