Manchester United have been linked with French international and Atletico Madrid playmaker Antoine Griezmann for quite some time and the latest reports are intriguing.
According to renowned source L’Equipe, Jose Mourinho wants to sign the versatile playmaker, furthermore, the French media outlet have suggested that the Portuguese manager wants Antoine to replace Mkhitaryan at Old Trafford.
The Armenian international has not been able to perform as well as he used to do for Dortmund and it will not be shocking to see him leave next summer.
If Griezmann replaces Mkhitaryan then we can expect the Les Bleus playmaker to start in the No.10 role behind main center forward Romelu Lukaku next season.
The 26-year-old star, who has a release clause of £89million in his contract (ESPN), scored a wonder goal against Roma in the Champions League last night.
Antoine normally plays in the secondary striker role with Pogba doing the creative work in the midfield for France. The same combination could be fruitful for Mourinho if the duo are united at Old Trafford. Here is how Griezmann could line up for Manchester United.
