Manchester United returned to winning ways in the Premier League by beating Everton at Goodison Park last night. The Old Trafford club managed to score two goals against the Toffees but at the moment, we seriously lack quality and depth in the attacking department with stars like Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Romelu Lukaku out of the team injured.
We would need to splash the cash to sign a top quality attacking player in the winter transfer window and in bid to achieve that, report according to the Daily Mail yesterday claimed that Man United want to sign Paulo Dybala from Juventus. Now, once again, France international Antoine Griezmann is in the lime light.
Reports suggests that the Red Devils are actually prepared to secure a deal with the Atletico Madrid superstar that will make him the highest earner at the club. At the moment, the club record signing Paul Pogba earns the highest, netting around £290,000-a-week per the Daily Star.
Now, according to an exclusive report from the Daily Star, United are ready to sanction a huge salary worth £300,000-a-week ($405,000-a-week) to secure the services of the Les Bleus playmaker in the January transfer window.
The report from the British source have mentioned that Barcelona are also interested in signing Griezmann next summer but Mourinho thinks that he can convince the Frenchman to join his side by activating the release clause this month.
Griezmann is one of the best playmakers in the world and in the current campaign, he has so far scored 7 goals and provided 5 assists in 20 games for the Rojiblancos.
