United are set to begin negotiations for Atletico Madrid’s French striker Antoine Griezmann according to the latest media reports.
The Metro notes:
The Red Devils have supposedly offered the French forward a huge contract on the same wages as Paul Pogba, who joined for £89million from Juventus in the summer.
The article then notes:
Griezmann hit out at speculation over his future this week, but it seems United are stepping up their interest in a player identified as a priority target by manager Jose Mourinho.
United have deployed a top agent to discuss terms with Griezmann’s entourage, and will now be hoping for a summer swoop for the former Real Sociedad man.
Griezmann is one of the most feared strikers in the world and the prospect of seeing him linking up with Zlatan Ibrahimovic next season is a mouth watering prospect for many United fans. The question is would Griezmann only come to a side that’s guaranteed Champions League football next season or if he even wants to come to England, it remains to be seen if the transfer can become a reality, this is one story that may have a few twists in the tail before it’s done.
