Man United Transfer: Finally Jose Mourinho Gives Thoughts On Antoine Griezmann’s Move - 4 years ago
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has refused to comment about Antoine Griezmann proposed move to Old Trafford. The 26-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to the Old Trafford this summer, with reports that United have held successful negotiations with the player. Griezmann also fuelled the speculation earlier this week by admitting that he could join the Red Devils this summer during a French chat show, sparking reports that the Frenchman will join Manchester United in the next three weeks but only wants an assurance that they will play in the Champions League next season. However, Jose Mourinho has refused to give an update over the move, insisting he does not like to talk about players from other clubs, he said: ‘I do not want to talk about Griezmann because that would be disrespectful to his club, Atletico. ‘Just how I do not like others talking about by my players, I’m not going to talk about Antoine either.’ Despite his denial, it is understood that the United boss is keen to have Griezmann at the Old Trafford this summer as a viable replacement for Wayne Rooney who is expected to quit the club later this window.
