Manchester United fans will be preparing themselves for a huge summer transfer window, despite whoever the man in charge may be. Big money will be there to be spent and the current squad certainly needs some heavy investment to get us back to the top.

The usually reliable Andy Mitten gave us another little bit of insight to Manchester United’s summer transfer plans, and the respected journalist says that the Old Trafford club are one of the teams who have been keeping a close eye on Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann.

Griezmann, 25, is just a wonderful footballer. He can play all across the front line and he will cause havoc from anywhere on the field; Particularly on the counter attack.

There is no doubting that the Frenchman would be that world class signing the fans have been craving, but it would come at a cost as Diego Simeone wouldn’t be tempted into parting with his prized asset unless huge money was offered.
