Manchester United is aiming for Antoine Griezmann (Atletico).
On the 14th (Korean time), France’s ‘Mediafoot’ said, “Manchester United dreams of making Griezmann a new number 7 legend. Griezmann has been outstanding at the World Cup and Manchester United will do anything to sign Griezmann.”
Griezmann played for Real Sociedad from the 2009–10 season and moved to Atletico Madrid in the 2014–15 season. Griezmann wore the Barcelona uniform in the 2019-20 season after growing into an ace of Atletico. Barcelona invested 120 million euros (approximately 166 billion won), Griezmann’s buyout.
However, his form at Barcelona was disappointing. Griezmann did not melt into Barcelona football and fell into a geek. He eventually returned to Atlético on loan for the 2021-22 season, signing a contract until 2026 with a full transfer this season.
Griezmann is showing his best performance by participating in the ‘2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar’ as the French national team. He is positioned in the second line, develops the offense, and helps the defense with an excellent amount of activity. Griezmann played in all six matches from the group stage to the semifinals and created 21 attacking opportunities. 스포츠토토
Manchester United are looking to fill the 7 void left by Cristiano Ronaldo with Griezmann. Manchester United have memories of trying to sign Griezmann in the past. In 2017, Jose Mourinho wanted Griezmann when he led Manchester United, but the player turned down the transfer.
Again, the situation is not easy. Griezmann has already signed a long-term contract with Atletico, so he has to pay a large transfer fee to sign. The media also agreed, saying, “It is not easy to convince Griezman to commit to Atletico again.”
