Manchester United are keeping their famous number seven shirt free to sign Antoine Griezmann in a £100m deal next summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Star is reporting that the Red Devils have kept the number available for a major signing and that Griezmann is their top transfer target.

The same report says that Griezmann is still high up on the list of Jose Mourinho’s remaining transfer targets at Manchester United as he looks to build the strongest team possible at Old Trafford.

The same article says that Manchester United could be set to go all out to try and sign Griezmann in the summer transfer window in 2018.

Griezmann was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford earlier this year before Atletico Madrid’s transfer ban on signing players was upheld and the Frenchman opted to stay in Spain.

However, if the report in the Daily Star is to be believed, it will only be a matter of time before Griezmann completes his much-anticipated move to Old Trafford.

Manchester United signed three players in the summer transfer window after bringing in Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic.

The Red Devils take on Basel in the Champions League at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.
