Man Utd manager Jose Mourinho is preparing a massive January transfer purchase in a bid to resurrect United’s faltering season.
According to the British press, Mourinho has identified Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann as the perfect player to reignite the stagnant United season.
It had been reported that United would wait until the summer before making a move for the French International, however, Mourinho is apparently urging the board to bring forward the transfer and cough up the £86 Million release clause.
Could this happen? Maybe
If Mourinho gets his way then all United need to do is meet Griezmann release clause, then there is absolutely nothing that Atletico can do about it.
Mourinho is still held in high regard by the United board and he is very capable of persuading them to release the funds this January rather than in the summer.
There is a chance this could happen this month but a summer move is still more likely.
