After letting go the likes of Falcao, Van Persie, Hernandez and record signing Angel Di Maria. It will be fair to say that Man United’s attack is weaker this season after only luring Martial and Depay.
In such a scenario, the Red Devils need to reinforce their attack and if reports are anything to go by then they have moved in to sign a world class playmaker.
Metro cite reports in the Spanish media claiming that Man United have made contact ahead of a transfer move to sign Atletico Madrid playmaker Antoine Griezmann.
United tried to sign the former Real Sociedad star in the summer (Express) as well but he stayed at the Calderon.
The French attacker has been one of the best playmakers in the La Liga over the past few years who regularly scores and creates goals. This season, the 24-year-old star has scored 6 goals and provided 4 assists in 12 games for the Spanish side.
Overall, Griezmann has netted no fewer than 95 goals in his career. Capable of playing anywhere in the attacking third, United will largely benefit from his services.
