Pundit: Man United are definitely signing this player in the summer, he’ll be a bargain
Emmanuel Petit claims that Antoine Griezmann is definitely on his way to Manchester United this summer
Antoine Griezmann is definitely joining Manchester United from Atletico Madrid this summer, according to Emmanuel Petit.
The Red Devils have been linked with a possible summer bid for the France international as Jose Mourinho begins to turn his attentions towards bolstering his squad at Old Trafford.
Griezmann earned rave reviews for his fine displays for France during last summer’s Euro 2016 tournament and has been in fine form for Atletico Madrid this season, too.
The 25-year-old has scored 17 goals and made eight assists in all competitions for the Spanish side.
It remains to be seen whether there is any truth to the reports that Manchester United could be set to table a big-money bid for the Frenchman.
However, former Arsenal and Chelsea star Petit is certain that Manchester United are set to bring Griezmann to Old Trafford in the summer.
Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Petit said: “I think he will come to Manchester United – definitely.
“He has a great partnership with Paul Pogba for the national team and they are very good friends as well.
“He will bring goals, assists but a winning mentality as well.
“Griezmann for the latest four years has improved his level every year. He has a big ambition personally but also for who he is playing for.
“He will be a big bargain for Manchester United.”
Manchester United take on Southampton in the EFL Cup final at Wembley on Sunday.
