Jose Mourinho to rival Chelsea for Antoine Griezmann once he took over the reigns at Manchester United according to reports. The French striker is one of the best in the business who was chased by Jose Mourinho when the Portuguese was with Chelsea. The former Real Madrid manager was fired by club owner Roman Abramovich for the poor season that Chelsea is enduring.
Jose Mourinho is one of the admirers of Antoine Griezmann who is one of the lethal forwards in Europe currently, playing his best football for the Spanish side Atletico Madrid. Mourinho tried to sign the forward for Chelsea, but failed in his attempts and it is expected that the French man will be one of the first players Jose Mourino will chase if he becomes the next Manchester United.
Jose Mourinho is the first option for Manchester United after Louis van Gaal and it is reported that it is only a matter of time for an official statement. All odds are favoring the Jose Mourinho to Manchester United rumors and the Portuguese may end up at the Old Trafford in the summer. United fans are already started about dreaming Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford who even had Jose Mourinho scarfs outside the Theatre of Dreams.
Manchester United have a very good reputation for winning titles which they failed to maintain in the last three season, failing to win anything as well failing to qualify for the Champions League under David Moyes. Louis van Gaal qualified for the UCL in his debut season with Manchester United but failed terribly in the group stages of the competition. United are currently playing the Europa League, but their situation is very weak.
The Red Devils are in need of a ‘WINNER’ to bring back their Glorious days and Jose Mourinho is the BEST man available. United failed to capture the former Real Madrid manager back in 2013 but are clearly in a strong position to get their man this time.
Atletico Madrid are chasing Juan Mata of Manchester United who may be used in United’s pursuit to sign Antoine Griemann who has a release clause of £60m.
