Manchester United are lining up a £160m double bid to sign Antoine Griezmann and Romelu Lukaku this summer, according to reports.

The Sun are reporting that Jose Mourinho wants to bring both Griezmann and Lukaku to Old Trafford this summer to form a formidable strike-force along with Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The same report states that Mourinho is desperate to keep Ibrahimovic at Old Trafford beyond the summer and wants the veteran forward to stay on for another year in a £10m deal.

The story also claims that Mourinho is prepared to tell Manchester United to match the world-record transfer fee of £89m paid to sign Paul Pogba last summer.

It is also claimed that Mourinho is desperate to sign Lukaku from Everton ahead of Premier League rivals Chelsea.

Manchester United have struggled to find consistent form this season and have been criticised for a perceived over-reliance on striker Ibrahimovic this term, with the Swede having netted 28 goals in all competitions this season.
