Last month, Manchester United were heavily linked with A.Madrid star player Antoine Griezmann. Now that the winter transfer window is already closed, the stories have gathered even more pace!
Latest reports from the Sun indicates that the £60million move for the playmaker is even closer as Griezmann wants to be the new David Beckham at Old Trafford.
Manchester United have reportedly agreed personal terms with the French international and it will not come as any surprise if he ends up moving to the Old Trafford club in the upcoming summer transfer window.
His image adviser has recently claimed:
“When I read articles about a hypothetical transfer to Manchester United I think it would be the ideal commercial scenario.
“He would play at David Beckham’s former club, which is his idol, with the same legendary number (7) on his back.”
He mainly plays as a secondary striker but can effectively be used anywhere in the attacking third.
This season so far in 31 appearances for his Spanish club, he has scored 15 goals and provided 8 assists. Griezmann is one of the biggest stars around and will definitely improve the quality of United’s attack.
It will be intriguing to see how Jose Mourinho will utilize him in his starting XI with the likes of Mkhitaryan and Zlatan.
