Manchester United fans react to the prospect of signing Antoine Griezmann

Antoine Griezmann would be the signing of the summer if Manchester United could somehow pull it off. Now today, our hopes of acquiring one of the best players in the world have just received a huge boost. According to some reports, the 26-year-old has told Atletico Madrid about his desire to leave.

The forward has emerged as one of the best footballers on the globe over the last couple of years, and he has been a supremely exciting player to watch at times due to his trickery, turn of pace and all-round brilliance.

Manchester United have now secured Champions League football, meaning they can attract the biggest names out there; and Griezmann definitely fits that bill.

A front three containing Griezmann, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Marcus Ashford literally has me salivating. It’d be such a deadly trio, particularly on the counter attack – and we all know that’s how Mourinho loves how to play.

It’s now up to Edward Woodward and company to go out and get the deal wrapped up as quickly as possible, before other clubs move in to sign him.

We’ve compiled a list of some Manchester United fans’ tweets about the thoughts of signing one of the best players on the planet, and it is fair to say that they are all pleased.

Have a look at the tweets about Griezmann below:
