Reports states that Manchester United have made contact with the agent of French super star Antoine Griezmann about a possible move for the player in the January transfer window.
Griezmann has been a valuable player for Atletico Madrid since joining them from Real Sociedad. This season the 24 year old has scored 6 goals in 12 appearances averaging a total of 1 goal in 2 games, which is not a bad goal return for an attacking winger.
Griezmann has also got pace and creativity to his game which is why United gaffer may seem interested. Louis van Gaal has not hidden his desire to add pace and more creativity.
According to Metro, Manchester United have made contact with Antoine Griezmann’s agent Grupo Santos Idub for the potential signing of the player in the January transfer window. United are desperate to land the player and it appears the player is ready for a big challenge with one of Europe’s top clubs.
United currently have Memphis Depay, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Ashley Young playing in asimilar position to Griezmann, which is either wide left or wide right hand side of the pitch but none of these players have both pace and creativity plus good goal returns like Griezmann. Van Gaal would be ready to fight off interest from Chelsea who is also reported to have interest in the player.
