Manchester United Football Club have always been one of those sides who can afford to splash the cash from time-to-time; just look at the Paul Pogba deal and the world record fee involved. Now it looks as though Jose Mourinho is planning another monumental transfer for this window, but it won’t be easy to pull off.

The man embroiled at the heart of it is Antoine Griezmann of Atletico Madrid, with the French forward heavily linked with a move to Manchester United by The Independent newspaper.

As we all know, it’s just speculation at this point, but my what an outrageously good bit of business it would be if Jose Mourinho and Edward Woodward can pull this off.

The Frenchman is one of the best players in the world right now, and is absolutely playing out of his skin for the Spanish giants Atletico. This is a player I’d absolutely love to see donning the famous red of Manchester United next season. Will it happen? Who knows, but the Old Trafford fans are certainly getting rather excited.

We’ve compiled some tweets by reds all over social media, and it’s fair to say they are getting super giddy at the prospect. Many of which believe Memphis’ exit frees up that famous #7 jersey for Griezmann to take.

Check out some of the best tweets here:

For now, just take the rumours with a pinch of salt. As we all know, anything can happen in football and the summer is a long way away.
