Jose Mourinho has refused to be drawn on the speculation linking Manchester United with a summer transfer swoop to sign Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid.

The Manchester United boss watched his side secure a 2-0 win over Ajax in the Europa League final on Wednesday night as they sealed their place in next season’s Champions League.

There has been lots of speculation linking the Red Devils with a big-money move to bring Griezmann to Old Trafford this summer.

And there are bound to be more reports in the media in the coming weeks and months as the transfer window reopens.

However, Mourinho remained coy when quizzed directly about the chances of Manchester United trying to sign Griezmann this summer.

Mourinho told BeIN Sports: “I do not want to talk about Griezmann because that would be disrespectful to his club, Atletico.

“Just how I do not like others talking about by my players, I’m not going to talk about Antoine either.”
