It is rare to see top quality players move from their club during the winter transfer window but this window seem heavily pregnant with the possibility of a surprise transfer.
According to emerging reports, Arsenal transfer target Antoine Griezmann is on the verge of completing a move to Manchester United.
The France international’s representatives are reported to have been in discussions with United for several months and the finer details of a move that could cost the Premier League giants €100m have already been thrashed out.
Although, United are keenly interested, it is believed that Wenger will go all out for the French international if Alexis Sanchez fails to sign a deal.
Despite that potential hurdle, Griezmann is reported to have already agreed his salary and is likely to inherit the iconic No.7 shirt, his chosen number for France and Atletico, soon to be vacated by Memphis Depay, who is on his way out of Old Trafford.
The Netherlands winger is surplus to Jose Mourinho’s requirements having struggled to make any sort of impression under the former Chelsea manager who succeeded Louis van Gaal in the summer.
Depay, who hasn’t featured for United since late November in the Europa League, has been the subject of interest from French side Lyon, who saw a £13 million bid rejected on Tuesday.
