Real star Ramos urges Man United to sign Griezmann for purely selfish reasons

Date Posted,May 30, 2017

Sergio Ramos has urged Manchester United to sign Antoine Griezmann this summer – as it would make things easier for Real Madrid in La Liga next season.

Griezmann has been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford and the French forward hinted the switch is a strong possibility when he rated his chances of a move at ‘six out of ten.’

Reports on Tuesday suggested the transfer had taken a major step forward after Spanish radio station Cadena Cope stated that Griezmann had informed Atletico Madrid of his decision to leave the club during the summer.

Griezmann has been one of the star performers for Diego Simeone’s side in recent seasons scoring 83 goals in 160 appearances and the Spanish club are doing everything to keep their star forward.

But the 26-year-old wants to play at the highest level and would be allowed to leave to leave if United meet the £87.4m release clause in his contract.

The Real Madrid skipper has certainly welcomed the speculation and hopes Jose Mourinho will step up his efforts to sign the prolific forward and ease the pressure on his side when they face Atletico Madrid next season.

Ramos, speaking on Cadena Cope, said: “If they [Manchester United] take him, if they take him out from Atletico, it would be less of a problem for us ahead of next season.

“Every footballer is their own world and one must make these kind of decisions.

“Sometimes they are difficult and sometimes they are not. Everyone has to decide where he wants to be, where he is going to be happy.

“He is a great striker and obviously the top clubs express interest in getting their services. He can decide what he wants.”
