    We need 3-4 positions filled and need top shelve players. We should strike when the opportunity of a world class player is there.

    + Grizzy is used to a similar playing style at Atletico

    I wouldn’t be bothered if we did or didn’t buy him now. For me a pacey RW and a starting LB should be priority, and has been for well over 2 seasons.

    That is what a lot of people are overlooking.

    Many people are suggesting other creative players with the goal of changing how we play. Which isn't a bad thing. But signing Griezmann should, in theory at least, fit into how we are playing and simply make us better at it.

    It's the beauty of signing anybody from Atletico really. If they worked well in Simeone's system, it's as close to a guarantee as is possible that they will be able to be trusted in the bigger games for Mourinho.

    In that case, I'd love for us to go for Carrasco.

    I've never seen him have a bad game.

    No..!
    His release clause is currently €200m but this is reduces to €100m in January.
    Any interested club only has to trigger the release clause and Greizmann is free to discuss terms with them, If he is interested.
    It is not an auction or a bidding war.


    Yes..!
    I agree with you on this though, I don't buy into that 'staying at Atletico out of loyalty' PR spin.
    If he had genuinely wanted to join United, he'd already be here.
    He delayed making a decision to see how things developed with Barcelona & Real, possibly even PSG.

    Forget Griezmann, I get the impression location and lifestyle is massively important to him,would not be surprised one iota to see him join Barcelona in 2018!!

    Not concerned about the rumours. If he does leave Atletico it will be for PSG or United, and I fancy our chances after having the deal all but done in the summer before he changed his mind at the last minute. Everyone involved would be fecking moronic to allow him to just wander back into the wild after having the deal sealed. He'll sign for us if we decide we still need him, if we don't sign him, it's because we're after a different target.

    Thats ridiculous from Antoine. How can it not mean he's joining Utd and knows our transfer plans? Even if its not why bother?
    If this were a Utd player Id be fuming

    Not really. What would you think if Pogba and Hazard were linked with a move to Madrid and he posted that?
    I don't even want Griezmann here at this stage so what exactly am I clutching at?
    Hell I hope Ozil stays far away from OT as well

    It is just a tweet and likely means nothing.

    Why would we get Ozil if we were getting Griezmann too? Think they're probably just friends, it's extremely clutching to get any transfer rumours from that tweet

    Are people actually decoding this tweet as a transfer rumour?

    Well that's obviously not true. Using us for what exactly? He had a release clause, we wanted to sign him, almost did but then Atletico got their transfer ban all of a sudden and made him stay out of loyalty (for once) and not screw them over with no replacement. Now it's anyone's guess who gets him for the 86m release clause which suddenly isn't a crazy amount of money. Barca last summer had no need for him, now though they have no Neymar and will be looking to replace Suarez with his aging and declining. It happens.

    I still want him, yea. Even if he's not playing as well as he was, there's a quality about him that we need moving forward.

    It's not that I don't still want him here. Its just I'm over the bullshit. Like De Gea. I was just done with the bullshit. I was made up he stayed though.

    It does get tiring. Specially when the summer stuff becomes year round stuff.

    I have a bad feeling about this transfer. I actually think he'll be underwhelming if he comes here. People expect him to come in and push us to the league when the truth is we are lacking creativity all over the pitch or a good attacking plan that doesn't seem to depend on pogba. If he's playing like he has this season it'll be another expensive gallatico flop. Is jose going to shackle him? Too many questions for the money for me.

    But...

    As crazy as it sounds his release clause is quite low (I know right!?) for a supposedly borderline world class talent. While I don't think we would get another player of his profile for the same price I'm still not convinced. I like that he's a United fan though.

    He isn't. He just idolizes Beckham and fancies following in his footsteps. His brother is a fan of the club though.

    Not fussed if Barca get him, we need a pure playmaking 10 and winger who can play on the right more than we need Griezmann. Any rate he had his chance last window and he chose to continue to finish behind Barca and Madrid.

    Like I said, obvious.

    If he’d put Griezmann, smiley face, Griezmann plus Marty Feldman=me and Özil playing footy together next season I’d of got it but then I’m just an old fecker and not really down with the kids innit.
