Man Utd £100m-rated target backed to become the best player in the world
Jose Mourinho targeted Griezmann even before Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s injury but will have the extra incentive to bring in a world-class striker to compete on all fronts next season.
Griezmann has improved on an annual basis to become one of the world’s leading strikers and finished third in the 2016 Best FIFA Men’s Player Award – only behind Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
“‘El Cholo’ Simeone, a coach we all know well and who’s considered among the best in the world, has motivated him a lot and now we’re starting to see his quality.
“I think Griezmann’s got all the attributes to succeed those other two geniuses.”
