Manchester United Interested In Bringing This Brilliant Winger To Old Trafford: Right Choice For Ole?

According to a recent report by the Independent, Manchester United have made contact with Atletico Madrid winger Antoine Griezmann over a potential move to Old Trafford later this summer. The same source has also claimed that Barcelona were the frontrunners for his signature, but they are now having second thoughts on the French talent which could pave the way for the Red Devils to make a swoop in this offseason.

Another Year, Another Impressive Season For Griezmann In The La Liga

The France international has enjoyed another productive season at the Spanish capital after he put in a string of eye-catching performances for Diego Simeone’s side during this campaign. However, he has not managed to establish a sustained run of success at the Wanda Metropolitano, so a change in scenery could be ideal for his career moving forward.

At 28, Griezmann is currently experiencing the best years of his playing career; hence, it makes a lot of sense for him to seek a high-profile move to an elite club like Man United during the summer transfer period. However, he might have to sacrifice playing in the UEFA Champions League for at least another season.

That would be a big compromise to make for the ex-Real Sociedad winger who has made 48 appearances for the La Liga giants this term, scoring 21 goals while creating ten assists in all competitions. He also has a wealth of experience at the international level while playing for France, scoring 28 goals in 69 matches for his country so far.

What Will The French Attacker Bring To The Theatre Of Dreams?

When playing with confidence on the pitch, Griezmann can be an unstoppable force in the final third as he can make well-timed runs at high speed behind the opposition backline. The French prospect is a prolific finisher inside the opposing penalty area and can also orchestrate decent openings for his teammates going forward.

Will Griezmann Be A Good Signing For Solsjkaer?

Griezmann will be a fantastic acquisition for the Red Devils as he has all the skillset to be a grand success at Old Trafford. The addition of proven talent like the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner will significantly bolster Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s attacking options at the red half of Manchester. He will not only be an excellent option to play alongside Marcus Rashford up top but will also help Solskjaer get the best out of his fellow countryman, Anthony Martial in the coming years.

The French sensation has showcased that he can be a consistent performer in the Spanish top-flight over the past few years which makes Griezmann, a calculated, low-risk acquisition for Man United if they can find a way to lure the La Liga ace to England this summer.
