If you are a Manchester United fan, then there is a good news coming for you. The team may sign up Antoine Griezmann for the next season. Manchester United team is already doing pretty well under Jose Mourinho though the team is positioned at the sixth place in the Premier League run. It is expected that the 'Red Devils' will be able to finish at top four by the end of the season.
After signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba at the start of the 2016-17 season, it is expected that team will do incredibly good under Jose Mourinho. Though the United has star-packed forward line with Zlatan and Wayne Rooney leading the attack, the result of the 2016-17 season is not too convincing to the Manchester United fans.
To strengthen the attacking line, Mourinho decided to sign Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann. The striker was one of the contenders for the 2016 Ballon D'or and it sums up how much influencing this player can be. If Manchester United able to sign the 25-year-old striker then they will be surely able to strengthen up their forward lines in the next season.
It is reported that Manchester United may offer Griezzmann 220K pounds per week, the same as Paul Pogba. Therefore, it can be considered as one of the biggest signings of the 2017-18 season. Atletico Madrid may release the player at a value of 86 million pounds.
Along with Antoine Griezmann, Mourinho may look to sign up players like Victor Lindelof, Alessandro Florenzi, and Kostas Manolas. There are some reports that the Manchester United may look to sign Real Madrid star James Rodriguez too. Therefore, we will eagerly wait for the 2017-18 season and hopefully, the reds will do pretty well in the season.
