Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann has fuelled speculation of a move to Manchester United next summer after the forward was photographed alongside Paul Pogba.
Pogba who re-joined United back in August uploaded several photos to his official Instagram account showing himself and Griezmann meeting up. The pair spent the summer together representing France at Euro 2016 and have since become best friends on and off the field.
The 25-year-old only recently signed a new deal at Atletico but in that deal a release clause of one hundred million euros inserted into his contract meaning that should United or any club meet that clause they would be free to speak to the player directly. A look at Online Betting sites will show you Griezmann’s number one likeliest destination is old trafford.
United are understood to see Griezmann as their primary target when the summer transfer window opens next year. Having already broken the world record to re-sign Paul Pogba from Juventus it would no doubt take a similar fee to land the forward but should Mourinho manage to persuade Griezmann to move to Old Trafford he could become the final piece in the Portuguese Old Trafford jigsaw puzzle.
Griezmann’s future at Atletico is said to be dependent on whether manager Diego Simeone remains at the club. The Argentine and Griezmann have formed a close relationship with one another over the years and should Simeone depart the Vicente Calderon Griezmann along with other key stars at the club may follow suite.
In signing Griezmann Manchester United would be getting a player who is about to enter his peak years as a footballer. United wouldn’t be getting a player for the future, nor a player whose best days are behind him they would be getting a player ready for the here and now and that is exactly what Mourinho so desperately needs if he is to take Manchester United back to the top.
