Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has already made French star Antoine Griezmann his number one target for next summer’s quest for more galactico signings, according to the Mirro.
By then Mourinho will be confident of offering the much coveted Atletico Madid star Champions League football as he prepares to make another Paul Pogba style swoop.
Mourinho made a number of attempts to bring Griezmann to Chelsea before the striker had elevated himself into the top bracket of European forwards.
Now rated in the Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez class, United know they would probably have to smash their recent £89 million club record transfer outlay for Pogba to get their man.
But that won’t put off Mourinho who believes the 25-year-old would be a sensation in the Premier League.
It’s understood that Griezmann is already aware of United’s interest and although he has signed a contract until 2021 he knows that Atletico Madrid are a selling club if the right offer comes in.
Mourinho realises he would have to move swiftly with Europe’s big clubs including wealthy neighbours Manchester City also in the hunt if Griezmann became available.
The United manager has through third parties started the courting making certain he and his new club are right at the head of the queue ready to pounce.
