Man Utd could move to sign £93million playmaker – May face competition

Dembele and Griezmann Barcelona

If reports in the media are anything to go by then Manchester United are linked with French international Antoine Griezmann.

According to a recent report covered by Sport, Barcelona are prepared to sell the 29-year-old attacker in the summer. He was lured last year for a fee of 120 million euros and the Catalan giants believe that the Les Bleus playmaker has not been able to justify his big fee.

Transfer: Report – Man Utd most interested in signing £46million player

The Spanish source have mentioned that the La Liga champions are looking to get 100 million euros (£93million) from the sale of the Les Bleus attacker and the likes of Man Utd, Arsenal, PSG and Chelsea could move to sign him.

Griezmann has so far scored 14 goals and provided 4 assists in 37 appearances for Barca in the current campaign.

Unfortunately, the Nou Camp outfit do not have much patience and want more. Not to forget, they splashed a mammoth fee to sign Coutinho from Liverpool in 2018 and after just one full season, the Brazilian was loaned out to Bayern Munich.

So, it will not come as any surprise if they opt to get rid of Griezmann as well. The former Atletico Madrid playmaker is a proven quality world class star, who was a key member of the French national squad that won the World Cup two year back.

The 78-capped star was brilliant for the Rojiblancos under the management of Diego Simeone and he has got ample quality and experience to improve any attack in the world.

The ex Sociedad attacker can play on either flank, as a secondary striker and also as an out and out center forward. Man Utd badly need such a versatile playmaker because they have not replaced Belgian forward Lukaku and Chilean winger Sanchez as yet.

In your view, should the Red Devils make a £93million move to sign Antoine Griezmann?


  1. There is no need to buy Antoine Griezmann.It will be a waste of time. Solskjaer is building a perfect team. We have Bruno Fernandez now. Man Utd,please keep the money to buy other vital players but not Antoine Griezmann.
