Manchester United want to sign both Antoine Griezmann and Alvaro Morata this summer to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney, according to reports.

The Daily Telegraph is reporting that Jose Mourinho has identified the two attackers as his top attacking targets in the summer transfer window.

The same story claims that Griezmann has long be a target for Mourinho but that the Manchester United boss has identified Real Madrid striker Morata as another top target following Ibrahimovic’s serious knee injury.

The article says Mourinho wants another striker who can play just ahead of Griezmann, and that Morata is his preferred target.

The story also explains that Chelsea were keen to sign Morata last summer but that the Blues are now focusing their efforts on Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez this year.

Manchester United are expected to be one of the Premier League’s busier clubs in the summer transfer window as Mourinho gears up for his second season in charge at Old Trafford.
