Roy Keane tells Man United to make this summer signing: He’s shocked me
Roy Keane says he is a huge admirer of Antoine Griezmann and would love to see Manchester United sign the striker this summer
Roy Keane has admitted that he would love to see Manchester United sign Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid this summer.
The France international has earned plenty of new admirers for his brilliant form over the last few seasons and was one of his country’s standout performers at last summer’s Euro 2016 tournament.
Manchester United have been heavily linked with a possible summer bid for the striker as Jose Mourinho begins to ponder bolstering his attacking options at Old Trafford.
And former Manchester United midfielder Keane says that he is a huge admirer of the France star.
Speaking to ITV Sport on Wednesday night, Keane said: “He’s been fantastic.
“I’ve been really shocked at the level he’s been playing at over the last two or three years, he’s been fantastic.
“We’re seeing the goals now on a regular basis in all the big games, at international level, the big Champions League nights.
“Really top player, and obviously he’s been linked with Man United. What a player he’d be for United.”
It remains to be seen whether Manchester United will make a bid to sign Griezmann this summer as the speculation in the media continues.
The 25-year-old has been in brilliant form for Atletico so far this season, scoring 17 goals and making eight assists in all competitions for the Spanish side.
