Manchester United transfer target sends clear come-and-get-me plea to Jose Mourinho in his biography

Manchester United transfer target sends clear come-and-get-me plea to Jose Mourinho in his biography

Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann has given a clear message to Jose Mourinho over sealing a possible future transfer to Manchester United.

The France international has been linked by ESPN as a likely target for the Red Devils next summer, and the player himself has now let slip about his intentions.

Speaking in a biography set to be released on him this week, Griezmann is quoted as saying he isn’t fond on the idea of playing in England because of the weather, though he could make an exception for Manchester United.

This will be music to the ears of United fans, who have enjoyed seeing their club spend big on some of the world’s biggest names in recent years as they look to get back to the top of English and European football after struggling since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.

Griezmann has shone in his career in La Liga, and looks a player who could take the Premier League by storm if given the chance.

‘In June, I extended my contract. I’m linked to the club until 2022. Although, I might be missing out on titles, I have everything here to be happy but that does not mean to say I won’t go one day,’ Griezmann was quoted in AS.

‘I haven’t made that decision. It all depends on various factors.

‘I have nothing against England except for the weather. Manchester United is a possibility.’

Griezmann also got United fans talking lately as he tweeted a picture of himself and fellow United target Mesut Ozil.

The Mirror have suggested Ozil could leave Arsenal for United on a free transfer, and it seems Griezmann would relish the prospect of linking up with him at Old Trafford.
