"Koulibaly and Griezmann now what a start to the window that would be," one United fan expressed.

Manchester United writer Dominic Booth pointed out how much the Frenchman had spoken about the English club in his new book and his love for former United number seven David Beckham.

"It is a bit strange that Antoine Griezmann has spoken so much about Manchester United in his new book.
"Says Pogba is treated unfairly in the British press and includes a massive David Beckham love in... yet he's nailed to move to Barcelona. The deal that never was?" Booth tweeted.
"Griezmann go to Barca and you will just be another Coutinho. Come to United we have money," one fan said.
