With a largely underwhelming January transfer window chalked down, it is widely anticipated that big money moves will take place over the summer. Manchester United were particularly quiet for the month, but José Mourinho will need another summer of recruitment to bring the Red Devils to the next level.
One move which has been the subject of several rumours has been Antoine Griezmann’s potential switch to Old Trafford.
The French striker has been leading the line for Atletico Madrid in recent seasons, and would be a huge acquisition for the English giants.
Several reports emerged on Wednesday night that Griezmann has already agreed to join Manchester United in the summer.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been the driving force of the United attack so far this season. However, with the Swedish striker 35 years old, there is a consensus that Mourinho will need a long-term solution on their goal-scoring front.
Griezmann would be the face of the United attack for years to come, and with Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford expected to improve and mature over the coming years, United could represent a nightmare for Premier League defences.
