With reports that Barcelona forward Antoine Griezmann is open to selling, Premier League giants Manchester United are said to be preparing a shock move for the Frenchman, Sport Bible reports.
The 29-year-old moved to Barca last season for a whopping €120 million however, he has not yet lived up to expectation with the Catalan giants.
Top Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo reported that United have shown interest in Griezmann for some time now and they are now making a move for the former Atletico man.
It was also hinted that the player would likely be offered the iconic number 7 jersey which at the moment, is occupied by Alexis Sanchez who is currently on loan at Inter Milan.
Recall that United has in 2018 signed Sanchez from Premier League rivals Arsenal, but the Chilean failed to impress at the Old Trafford club where he just managed 5 goals in 45 games before he was shipped out on loan.
United also sold Lukaku to Inter and are yet to find a formidable replacement, however it is still in doubt if Nigeria’s Odion Ighalo who has impressed since his arrival at the club will get a permanent deal.
