Manchester United are expected to be active in the transfer window when it is re-opened in the January of 2018 but it appears that Jose Mourinho is not interested in the signing of French and Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann after the player denied contact with the Special One.
Griezmann was a top choice for Manchester United in the summer transfer window but the attacker decided to stay put at the Vicente Calderon as his club could not sign a player due to their transfer ban.
According to recent reports, Manchester United have lined up Griezmann and Mesut Ozil as targets but popular opinion claims that the French attacker would be a better buy for the Red Devils.
Jose Mourinho is still a player shot of the number he wanted during the summer and he is expected to add at least on player in the winter.
Atletico Madrid are currently struggling in the league and other competitions this season and Griezmann has been tipped to exit the side. He appeared French TV show Telefoot, and he was quizzed if Mourinho calls him on phone and he replied “NO”.
It is only a matter if when not if Griezmann will leave Atletico Madrid. We cannot say for sure where he will end up but his closeness with Paul Pogba is a factor that could lure him to the fortress of Old Trafford.
Griezmann is valued at 80,00 Mill. €.
