Manchester United failed to adequately strengthen their attack last summer. They needed a right winger but managed to sign no one and as far as the strike-force is concerned, they were able to lure a veteran in the form of Cavani.
Next summer, the Red Devils should splash the cash to improve their offense and once again the name of Antoine Griezmann is in the spot light.
According to recent report covered by AS (press view provided below), Barcelona have set their sights on signing Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund in the next transfer window and for that, they will need to raise funds.
The Spanish source have mentioned that Griezmann, who has not been able to shine in big games for the Catalan club, could be sold.
It is stated that Man Utd were obsessed to hire the French international when he was at Atletico Madrid but the attacker’s wish was to play for Barca and Messi. AS claim that the 29-year-old, who will be out of contract in 2024, can now be lured for a fee of just 60 million euros (£51.5million)
It must be remembered that the Les Bleus star was signed for a mammoth fee of 120 million euros in 2019 (FCB).
Griezmann was a superstar with the Rojiblancos under the management of Diego Simeone. However, he has not been able to perform at his best at the Nou Camp. Why? AS state that the former Real Sociedad player’s preferred position is where Messi plays and the Argentine is untouchable.
In the current campaign, so far, the World Cup winning star has directly contributed in 23 goals (12 goals and 11 assists) goals in 38 appearances (all competitions) for the Spanish giants (Transfermarkt).
The Frenchman can play anywhere in the attacking third and has the experience and quality to improve the offense at Old Trafford. However, we need someone to serve the club in the long run. Antoine Griezmann will turn 30 next Sunday. In your opinion, should Man Utd pay £51.5million to finally get his signing done?
