Antoine Griezmann may move to Manchester United after all

Antoine Griezmann is being urged to consider to move to Old Trafford in the summer to enhance his value and become a big brand like his colleague Paul Pogba.

The team’s midfielder is currently considered to be the largest shirt seller in the football world. Moreover, the CEO of Prime Time Sport, Esteve Calzada, thinks that the midfielder from Atletico Madrid might rival his teammate.

Griezmann has become one of the most wanted athletes in Europe because of his exploits for the Spanish club in the last several seasons. There is no need to mention that he has been linked with a move to United in the summer and several reports even claim that he is currently Jose Mourinho’s primary target.

The 25-year-old has shown that he is very happy to stay in Madrid while there are some concerns about his life off the stadium in England. Griezmann will most likely be offered the iconic number 7 shirt if he moves to Manchester, but Calzada thinks that it is only a small part of what will make him a worldwide star.

The chief of Prime Time Sport told the Manchester Evening News that playing in the United Kingdom is always more advantageous since the market is larger than the Spanish one. Atletico is a big team, but they certainly are not Real Madrid, Manchester United or Barcelona. Remember the impact that Pogba had after joining the Red Devils? The young midfielder certainly has a future in Manchester United.
