Forget Griezmann – Mourinho wants to seal deal for Madrid star, after Griezmann snub

Filed under England, Italy, Spain, Transfers


As the transfer market open, clubs around Europe are trying to boost their team in the necessary positions, and Manchester United are not being left behind in this transfer window.

Coach José Mourinho was whining last season about how his squad was left with 15 players at one point during the season and a need to strengthen is imminent. Lots of players have been linked with them, let’s consider most likely ones to make the switch to Old Trafford.

After Griezmann announced that he will be staying at Atletico Madrid, United has turned their attention to another player of neighbouring club, Real Madrid, according to report from Daily Mail.

Alvaro Morata has been linked with a move away from Real and United will try to lure him, and they made it clear that a pursuit for a striker is their top priority this window. After scoring 15 goals and assisting 4 more last season in La Liga, United may be willing to pay around £60m for his services, IF Real are willing to sell.

Victor Lindelof is also expected to join United from Benfica for around €35 million, likewise a deal for Burnley’s Keane is also a possibility for United. Monaco’s Fabinho who can play defensive midfield and right back and Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic are all been linked to United this summer.

The James Rodriguez deal has cooled off a bit but a lot could still happen in this transfer window.
