Thierry Henry explains why Jose Mourinho should sign Antoine Griezmann at Man United

by Tanveer Arayan


Thierry Henry believes Antoine Griezmann would be the perfect signing for Jose Mourinho at Manchester United.

He has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford since the Portuguese boss took over in the summer and would be part of a world-record £100 million deal.

His career started at Real Sociedad and Henry believes his rise to prominence at the Basque club showcases he he the right mentality to be a massive success in the Premier League.

“I think he’s someone that should come to the Premier League,” Henry said.

“If he goes to Old Trafford then it’ll be great for them but he’s a player you need, for the league and everyone, for the fans , to be able to see that guy. I know of him for a very long time, he’s been at Sociedad early in his career.

“No one wanted him in France by the way, when you think that he had to go to Sociedad to find his way, that tells you the character of the man and how great a player he is when no one thought he was going to do it.

“For now people talking about him going to Manchester United and what he can bring to the league and not only Manchester United if he goes there, it speaks volumes on how far he came from.

“But yes I think he should come here. Is it Man United? I don’t know but I think he should come to the Premier League.”

It’d be incredible to have him at Old Trafford, but a move depends on whether Diego Simeone stays in charge at Athletico or not.

Griezmann has been in fine form under the Argentine and should he decide to leave, we could see him in a United shirt alongside his good friend Paul Pogba.
