Man United should pass on £92m Antoine Griezmann for 19-year-old sensation

Barcelona star Antoine Griezmann has reportedly been made available for transfer this summer.

According to Spanish publication Sport, as sourced by Caught Offside, the Catalan giants may be forced into offloading their French World Cup winner due to the financial hit they will receive as a consequence of the coronavirus crisis.

The report claims the 29-year-old would be made available for £92m, just one season after he arrived at the Nou Camp from Atletico Madrid.

It is claimed that United, Chelsea and Arsenal could be potential suitors for the talented forward.

Griezmann has scored just 8 La Liga goals this term, struggling to make an immediate impact at his new club.

There is no doubt Griezmann is world-class on his day and he played a prominent role in France’s 2018 World Cup win under Didier Deschamps in Russia.

Griezmann has flirted with the prospect of moving to Old Trafford before, with his brother Théo a huge lover of United.

He is a versatile forward and can play anywhere across the front three which still makes him an exciting proposition.

But we feel Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should pass on the opportunity to sign an ageing Griezmann and focus his attention on Borussia Dortmund starlet Jadon Sancho.

Sancho is ten years younger than Griezmann and is a sensational talent.

The England international has scored 14 goals and contributed 15 assists in the Bundesliga, and is probably the most coveted youngster in world football.

Sancho is expected to leave Germany to seek a new challenge elsewhere and United should be doing everything they can to secure his signature.

A natural right-winger, Sancho would solve the imbalance on the flank in Solskjaer’s side and adds pace and flair.

While he would likely cost north of £100m, Sancho would represent the future of United’s attack and be a real coup in Solskjaer’s revolution.
