As far as signings for the future go, Daniel James and Sean Longstaff look like they could be clever captures for Manchester United.
The Swansea City winger and Newcastle United midfielder are both being linked with a move to Old Trafford (The Telegraph) and, while both players also look capable of doing a job now, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is going to need way more than that if he is going to bring the glory days back.
Bearing that in mind, it is not a surprise to see rumours about a move for Antoine Griezmann resurface again (The Independent), and a former Premier League striker is now urging Solskjaer and Ed Woodward to snap him up.
“Griezmann runs everywhere, is dynamic, he gets goals, is a finisher,” Tony Cascarino told talkSPORT. “He’s exactly what United need! He would change the way they play.”
If Manchester United want to start challenging for the Premier League title again, as Cascarino points out, Griezmann is exactly the kind of player Solskjaer needs to add to his squad.
Over the past five seasons, the Frenchman’s record in front of goal has been phenomenal, especially when considering he has been playing in an Atletico Madrid side who are quite cautious and pragmatic.
And at 28, he is now at the peak of his career. Sign him, and Manchester United would be getting an elite player ready to make an instant impact.
It is time for Manchester United to start signing some actual quality, quality that will improve their starting XI. And Griezmann is a good place to start.
