Man United legend Bryan Robson certain Griezmann is perfect for Mourinho’s side

first_imgFormer Manchester United captain Bryan Robson believes Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann is exactly the type of player the Red Devils should be bringing in.Recent reports have claimed that the French international has expressed his desire to leave the Spanish capital this summer after three years with Diego Simeone’s side.United are huge admirers of the undoubtedly talented player and Robson, now an ambassador at the club where he enjoyed huge success, believes the 26-year-old would be perfect.“Griezmann is a top class player. We know that he wants to leave Atletico Madrid but he’s the sort of player that United would want to bring in,” Robson told Jim White on talkSPORT“He’s definitely a player who’s got the quality to be a United player.”Current Red Devils captain Wayne Rooney faces an uncertain summer with his future at the club far from clear.But Robson still believes the club’s all-time top scorer still has something to offer the team.“I think it’s been a difficult year for Wayne,” added the United legend.“He’s been in and out of the team and I think to get the best out of Wayne Rooney he needs to be playing week in and week out.“But with Zlatan’s injury we are a little bit bare as far as forwards at the club.“The club would be looking to sign a forward, I am sure of that, and that’s why Griezmann keeps getting mentioned.“But I think Wayne could still do a job for the club and I hope that the manager wants him to stay, and Wayne wants to stay, and I still think he can do a role for the club.”last_img read more
