Manchester United is currently in negotiations to secure the services of World Cup champion Antoine Griezmann, a move aimed at bolstering their attacking prowess under the strategic vision of Erik ten Hag.
In the ongoing Premier League season, the Red Devils have only managed to net 13 goals in 12 games, resulting in a concerning goal difference of -3.

The offensive contributions from Rasmus Hojlund, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Antony, Jadon Sancho, and Alejandro Garnacho have collectively produced a mere solitary goal in the Premier League campaign.
While Hojlund has exhibited an impressive performance in the Champions League with five goals, adapting to the demanding nature of the Premier League has proven challenging for the Dane, prompting Ten Hag to seek additional support for the frontline.
Notably, Griezmann, a 32-year-old forward, was on the brink of joining Manchester United in 2017, but Atletico Madrid faced a transfer ban, thwarting the move.

In the current season, Griezmann has showcased excellent form, contributing eight goals to Diego Simeone’s team. Despite having a release clause of approximately £22 million, Manchester United is reportedly unfazed by the financial aspect and is well-positioned to trigger the clause.
According to reports from the Nacional, discussions have taken place between Manchester United and Griezmann’s representatives regarding a potential transfer to Old Trafford.
Griezmann is purportedly open to departing from Spain, where he has spent the entirety of his career.
To entice the Frenchman, Manchester United is rumored to be prepared to triple Griezmann’s salary, offering a lucrative weekly sum of around £240,000.
