If reports in the media are anything to go by then Manchester United have agreed personal terms with not one but two top quality attacking players.
Yesterday, we covered a report (via The Sun) claiming that the Red Devils have agreed personal terms with Antoine Griezmann, who has a release clause of €100million in his contract.
Moreover, earlier in the day, we reported (via Don Balon) that United have also agreed with super agent Jorge Mendes for Real Madrid star James Rodriguez, who is rated around €60million by the Los Blancos.
The above mentioned stars are versatile attacking players, who can be deployed anywhere in the attacking third.
Griezmann mainly plays as a secondary striker for France and Atletico. Hence, we can expect the former Real Socieded attacker to line up behind the main center forward if he joins the Old Trafford club.
Rodriguez’ preferred position is central attacking midfield but if Griezmann plays behind the CF, we can expect James to line up on the left hand side of the attack in Mourinho’s preferred 4-2-3-1 formation.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan should partner the new comers in the attacking midfield.
Here is how Man United will Line up with Griezmann and Rodriguez.
