Man Utd eyeing summer move for Antoine Griezmann

      Comments Off on Man Utd eyeing summer move for Antoine Griezmann

Red Devils are reportedly eyeing up the possible transfer of Barcelona striker Antoine Griezmann following his tough campaign at the Catalan club.

The 29-year-old centre-forward has established himself as one of the biggest names and top attacking footballers on the planet in recent times, having been a world-class performer at previous club Atletico Madrid.

However, Antoine has struggled to settle at Camp Nou and the Red Devils are interested in snapping him up and offering him their iconic number 7 shirt.

Man United have had greats like George Best, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo wearing that number on their backs, though it’s currently occupied by flop signing Alexis Sanchez.

Chile international is out on loan at Inter Milan and one imagines he has no future at Theatre of Dreams, with the World Cup winner an ideal like-for-like replacement.

That should allow Griezmann to take the 7 jersey if he does make the move to Man United, with Sport also recently suggesting Red Devils were long-time admirers of his.

It would be interesting to see if Antoine could get back to his best at Old Trafford, but he’d likely have a more key role at the club than he has with Barcelona, which has seemed to be part of the reason he’s found it tough to transition from being the focal point of his team at Wanda Metropolitano.
