Manchester United continue to falter behind neighbours Man City in the race for Premier League dominance, and any sort of title challenge looks well gone at the moment with the form of City.
The Red Devils and manager Jose Mourinho have endured a difficult few weeks, with pressures building off the field for the Portuguese coach and some of the performances on the field leaving a lot to be desired.
However, January represents a chance for United to go and add some big names and quality to their ranks if they are willing to spend again, and our landlord here in the Tavern thinks that there’s one or two players out there who the Red Devils can snap up.
One such player he thinks could make the world of difference for United is current Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann, who has had a stellar few years and appears ready to move on to the next chapter in his career.
The French forward was in stunning form for his country back at Euro 2016, and his performances for Madrid have been similar ever since, leading to increased speculation he will seal a move to one of the giants of the game.
Man United need to ensure it is them who sign him. Missing out on Griezmann to a Barcelona or rivals City is simply something they should not be comprehending, and the classy Frenchman is one of few players in world football who can genuinely improve the United squad with immediate effect.
United fans, what do you think? Good signing? Let us know!
