Man United transfer news: Gary Neville wants Luis Suarez at Old Trafford, Griezmann to sign for £88m and more, 28th September 2017
Man United still chasing Griezmann
Antoine Griezmann could play in the Premier League next season as Manchester United are preparing a new £88million move for the French striker next summer, reports ESPN.
United were close to signing Griezmann last season before a transfer ban ruined Jose Mourinho's plans and United ended up signing Romelu Lukaku.
However, with Diego Costa's arrival at Atletico this season, Griezmann's exit seems more and more likely with United confident of signing the flamboyant striker.
Griezmann shares a close relationship with United players Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial which may put the Red Devils in the driver's seat for signing Griezmann.
Suarez is a Man United player, claims Neville
Former Manchester United great Gary Neville claims Luis Suarez is an ideal player for The Red Devils despite previously playing for Liverpool.
Neville was speaking with Sky Sports about the players United need to next season to continue their evolvement under Jose Mourinho and Nevills thinks United should try and lure Suarez away from Barcelona.
Neville said: “Suarez, even though he played for Liverpool, is a United player.
“It’s arrogance to say that but he’s fantastic. He scores goals, he’s aggressive, he chases every ball down.”
Neville also endorsed Griezmann's move to Old Trafford as the former defender thinks Griezmann will bring a degree of flair to United's play and be the perfect support for the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford.
Diatta makes a come-and-get-me plea
Sarpsborg midfielder Krepin Diatta claims it would be a dream move to join Manchester United after being scouted by Jose Mourinho's staff in recent months.
Player's agent Youssoupha Fall has also confirmed talks with Man United and thinks a move is likely given club's interest in the 18-year-old midfielder.
Fall said: “I’ve spoken to Manchester United’s scouts twice. First under the U20 World Cup, and again after the (league) game against Brann.
United had scouts present at Sarpsborg’s meeting with Odd at the weekend, after which Diatta confirmed his interest in a move to Old Trafford, insisting he is good enough to make the switch.
When Diatta was made aware of United's scouts watching him, the player made an honest admission about his dreams and the current club he is playing for.
Fall said: “I didn’t know they scouted me today, but to join them would be a dream come true. I think I’m good enough, but I play for Sarpsborg and love this club. We’ll see what happens in the future.”
