Manchester United

A surprising transfer message was given by Antoine Griezmann to Manchester United, his ideal club.

Erik ten Hag, who is eager to secure backing for Rasmus Hojlund, has been linked to Man United in an attempt to acquire the Atletico Madrid star.

Antoine Griezmann has stifled rumors that he wants to join Manchester United by announcing that he wants to establish himself as a “legend” at Atletico Madrid.

According to recent Spanish media sources, Griezmann may have a contract release clause of under €25 million (£21.7 million) if United decides to pursue him. It is believed that Erik ten Hag would want a more seasoned forward to assist 20-year-old Rasmus Hojlund.

Griezmann, a French international who is now playing for Atleti, would be a good fit at age 32. After posting a strong 31 goal total in the league the previous season, he has already scored eight goals and provided one assist in 12 La Liga games this season.

With Griezmann at the center of their squad, Diego Simeone’s team is solidly in the running for the La Liga championship this season. Furthermore, the 2018 World Cup victor says he can’t wait to return home with trophies from the Spanish city.

Griezmann said to Marca, “I have to earn myself to be a legend in this club.” “That is my goal. My goal is to win some titles for Atlético and make the fans happy by 2024. It would only be a fantasy.”

Ten Hag is eager to add real competition for Hojlund, who has yet to score in the Premier League, and has designated a striker as one of United’s four main areas of concentration for recruitment during the next two transfer windows. The club will probably decide against signing Anthony Martial to a 12-month deal when his contract expires in the summer in order to get him off the books.

After Sir Jim Ratcliffe takes over as manager of football operations at United, Martial may depart as part of a significant purge. Another attacker who is nearly certain to depart is Jadon Sancho, who is expected to leave in January after being benched by the first team.
