The Griezmann Effect

(“Antoine Griezmann, 10 curiosità sul fra” (CC BY 2.0) by NazionaleCalcio)

Reports have it that Griezmann will be on the market this summer with United close to the top of the list to get him. Griezmann really blew up at the 2016 Euros where he scored 6 goals and took home the golden boot despite France falling short to Portugal. Not only did he bring energy to the team but he scared other teams he played against. 

It seems though that Griezmann may be leaving Spain to join an English team. With Griezmann potentially leaving Athletico Madrid it could have a huge on effect on the club. As you may know, he is their main guy and produces a lot for them. If he does leave, Athletico will be faced with a decision – do they attempt to bring in a superstar replacement, or will they instead invest in youth (as we saw Dortmund do following their sales).

If Griezmann does in fact leave, where could he end up? Manchester United? Griezmann has already expressed interest in playing with international teammate Paul Pogba on the club level. Griezmann would be a great addition to United’s squad but where would he fit in?

With all the forwards Man U has, would Griezmann be able to slot right in? And who would be affected? United already have countless attacking players such as Ibrahimovic, Martial, Rashford, Mkhitaryan, Lingard, and Rooney. So with Griezmann potentially coming to the club some players will have to lose minutes. In my opinion, United have a solid group of young players that I would hate to see be broken up just because they won’t be getting enough playing time.

So, although Griezmann is a fantastic player, and Manchester United have already expressed interest in him, is there room for him? Will he fit in right? And possibly the most important question – will he be able to keep up his fantastic form?
