Following a period of almost complete inaction in the transfer window during Sir Alex Ferguson’s time at the club, Manchester United have, in recent years, adopted a policy of unrestricted spending every summer.

Angel Di Maria, Luke Shaw, Memphis Depay, Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba have all arrived (and, in some cases, left again) since the Glaswegian retired for considerable fees. Most notably, the latter broke the record for the game’s most expensive move as he returned to Old Trafford from Juventus.

As we approach the business end of the season and after it the summer window, attentions have already turned to who may arrive before the next campaign kicks off. Antoine Griezmann is the name on everyone’s lips with rumours swirling of unrest at Atletico Madrid.

Jose Mourinho has been speaking on Pogba and transfers in general and came up with some intriguing comments. As quoted by The Telegraph, he remarked.

“I think next summer will bring a few surprises and Paul Pogba will lose his status as the world’s most expensive player.”

Not to burst supporters’ bubble, Griezmann would roughly cost just about the same as his compatriot due to his buyout clause so it’s likely someone else that the Special One is referring to. Marco Verrati’s imperious showing against Barcelone has augmented his standing in the game no end and he could certainly command such a price.

Closer to home, could Harry Kane become the latest galactico at Madrid or, even United? With Daniel Levy’s history in negotiations, United would almost certainly have to stump up a nine-figure sum for the Englishman, should they target an alternative to Griezmann.

Or, fingers crossed, China come in with a bid for Marouane Fellaini.
