Paul Scholes names the one player he would love Man United to sign in January
Paul Scholes wants to see Manchester United make a transfer swoop to sign Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid
Paul Scholes says Manchester United should try and make an ambitious transfer swoop to sign Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid.
The Red Devils have been criticised for failing to produce consistent performances under their new manager Jose Mourinho since his appointment back in May.
United are currently trailing Premier League leaders Chelsea by a staggering nine points after 12 games of the new season.
It has been a slow start to life for Mourinho at Old Trafford and the stuttering form has inevitably led to speculation that United could dip into the winter transfer market in January.
And former United midfielder Scholes has admitted that he would love to see the Red Devils make a transfer swoop to sign Griezmann from Real Madrid.
Speaking during BT Sport‘s coverage of United v Feyenoord on Thursday night, Scholes replied when asked who he would sign for the Red Devils: “I think Griezmann would be up there.
“He looks a top centre-forward and whether he’ll stay at Atletico I’m not sure but I think we have to be in the market for somebody like that.”
