Antoine Griezmann is really keen on moving to Manchester United. The reports in England say that the French forward’s representatives were talking with Red Devils for several months and the deal between one of the most successful teams in England and Atletico Madrid star could actually be finalised this summer. Griezmann really wants to change his location and he thinks that the legendary Old Trafford is the best place for him, so he can link up with his good friend from French International team Paul Pogba, who has joined Red Devils in the previous summer transfer window.

Another transfer record in the Premier League?

It is understood that Antoine, who can play at every position in the offensive formation has already agreed on a weekly wage and shirt number with the Manchester United representatives. The French forward will play with the famous number 7 shirt. Griezmann would love to arrive to the Premier League in the January, but Atletico are currently having a transfer ban and it can hold a possible move for 25-year old former Real Socieded star. The Spanish giants aren’t able to buy or even sell any player this year, but the hope that the ban will be overturned.

Simeone: 'he is a fantastic player'

‘I can’t hold anyone down, I work here to get better, I want Atletico to be the best club in the world and I can’t say nothing negative about Antoine.

He is working hard, he is extraordinary at the moment. You can see he has gotten back on the scoresheet, so we are very happy he is still our player. His form is great. I’m not surprised that the best teams in the world would like to have him in their squads. There only few teams in the world, who can afford him, but we don’t want to talk about money.

Let’s see what the future will bring for him and for us.” – Diego Simeone said the to the Spanish newspaper.

The 25-year old Frenchman has continued to make impact for his side, scoring ten goals and delivering six assists in the Spanish league. Jose Mourinho thinks that Antoine Griezmann is the best player to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who most likely will end his fantastic career at the Old Trafford.
