Manchester United have been splashing the cash over the last few years, in a bid to return to the top of the footballing pyramid in England. Although the signs of progression are clear for all to see, you get the feeling that they’ll be more big name players incoming.
One man who I’d personally love to see at Manchester United is Antoine Griezmann, with the French attacker really emerging as one of the finest footballers on the planet at the moment.
Now, that fire has been stoked by Sebastien Bellencontre, who is the 25-year-old’s ‘image adviser’. Bellencontre has stated that the Red Devils signing Griezmann would be the ideal scenario in marketing.
“When I read articles on a hypothetical transfer to Manchester United, I have to say this would be the ideal scenario in marketing,” he is quoted as saying by So Foot.
“He would play for the same club as Beckham, his idol, with the same legendary number 7 in the back.”
It would be an absolutely wonderful piece of business of Manchester United could somehow pull this off in the summer, and although it’d probably cost the Glazers a huge amount of money – surely, Griezmann would repay us with his on-field performances.
Right now, Jose Mourinho is building something, and we’ve all seen the progression over the last six months or so. Griezmann could well be that final piece in the puzzle.
