Mourinho to launch 2017 Man Utd pursuit of Griezmann

Manchester United are set to go after Antoine Griezmann in a big way next year.

The Bleacher Reportsuggests that Jose Mourinho is already making plans for 2017 and they include bringing in Griezmann from Atletico Madrid on a big-money deal.

The French forward is being eyed up as a potential long-term replacement for current Red Devils captain Wayne Rooney.

Mourinho has already injected plenty of quality into his United squad by signing Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Eric Bailly and Henrikh Mkhitaryan over the summer and is eager to add further world-class players to his Old Trafford revolution.

Griezmann, 25, was linked with a move to Chelsea during the recent transfer window but ended up signing a new contract with Atletico where he has been since 2014.
