With Manchester United almost certainly in the market for a forward of some description as the summer transfer window looms, Theo Griezmann, brother of Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann has fueled speculation that his sibling might fancy a move to Old Trafford. Griezmann junior posted the message below on Sunday evening, well over 24 hours after United’s drab 1-0 win over Aston Villa.
Glory glory Man united ! ????

Whilst this is far from any sort of veiled confirmation that Griezmann fancies a move to Manchester this summer, the timing of his tweet is interesting, given that United had played a day earlier and appeared unprovoked. Of course, Griezmann does have a history of this, having tweeted the exact same words back in August when speculation of a move for his brother was rife, before declaring himself simply a ‘fan of United’.
Whether a wind-up or not, one would hope that the club are keeping close tabs on the 25-year old. The Frenchman has notchd 29 goals for Atletico this season with the Madrid club even on points with Barcelona at the top of La Liga and facing Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals.
