Spanish exit? French World Cup winner Griezmann tells Manchester United La Liga exit may happen this summer
Manchester United have been given hope in their quest to sign Antoine Griezmann after the Frenchman admitted he may leave La Liga.
The brilliantly gifted attacker has been linked with both United and Barcelona over the last few seasons, with both clubs looking to add another ‘special’ player to their already impressive squads.
But despite all the speculation and transfer talk, Griezmann has so far not left the Spaniards and has never given any real indication that he sees his future elsewhere, as he is playing top-level football on a regular basis and winning silverware with Madrid.
But is seems he has made up his mind where he will be playing next season, after announcing on his Twitter account that he will indeed be leaving the Spanish giants at the end of the current season.
He was Atletico’s inspirational figure when they won the 2018 Europa League, scoring twice in a 3-0 win over Olympique Marseilles in the final, before helping them win the UEFA Super Cup. Griezmann also lifted the Spanish Super Cup in 2014.
And now he has admitted that he could in fact leave Spain, alerting a number of Premier League clubs.
“There’s a need for patience, as it’s still soon,” Griezmann said on the Daily Express website.
“I want my future to be decided more than anyone, but there’s a need to wait.
“I don’t know if I’ll remain in Spain. Maybe in two weeks we’ll know something. I just want to play football and have fun.”
If United are serious about getting back to the very top of the game and challenging for the premier League and Champions League titles once again, they will need to beat off Barcelona and try to get this deal done as Griezmann is just the kind of superstar player they need to turn things around.
Griezmann is just the type of game changing attacker that Solskjaer needs in this summers transfer window to get the club back inside the top four, playing Champions League football and then pushing on to challenge for the Premier League title.
