Ander Herrera sends message to Man United fans about Antoine Griezmann
Ander Herrera reveals that he is a huge admirer of reported Manchester United transfer target Antoine Griezmann
Ander Herrera admits that he is a huge admirer of Antoine Griezmann and says he would love to see the France star sign for Manchester United this summer.
The French attacker has long been linked with a possible summer transfer move to Manchester United.
Griezmann rated his chances of signing for Manchester United this summer as “six out of 10” earlier this week but it remains to be seen whether he will end up moving to Old Trafford before next season.
However, Manchester United midfielder Herrera has revealed that he is a keen admirer of the 26-year-old.
Herrera told Spanish radio station Cadena Ser: “Griezmann is a brilliant player, a phenomenon.
“He is a star and all the teams in the world would want him. However, Griezmann is still an Atletico Madrid player and I respect Atletico and their fans.
“I’ve said it in the past, after [Real Madrid’s] Cristiano Ronaldo and [Barcelona’s Lionel] Messi, he is in that group of those that can become their possible successors.”
Herrera was speaking after helping Manchester United claim Europa League glory on Wednesday night thanks to their 2-0 final triumph over Ajax in Stockholm.
That win, thanks to goals from Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, secured Manchester United’s place in the Champions League next season despite their sixth-placed finish in the Premier League.
