Atletico Madrid star and reported Man Utd target Antoine Griezmann has had a difficult season so far this year, but he finally showed his class on Wednesday night.
The Frenchman had just three goals and three assists in 14 appearances prior to the Champions League encounter with Roma, but he finally lit up the Wanda Metropolitano with the stunning goal seen below.
With his barren run on the pitch and speculation linking him with an exit off it, it’s fair to say that the jeering from the Atleti supporters last weekend was understandable as having established himself as one of the top players and biggest names in Europe in recent seasons, he was nowhere near his best.
However, he finally gave them a reason to cheer for him with a sensational strike that he will hope has opened the floodgates and will lead to more goals between now and the end of the season to ensure that Diego Simeone’s side remain on course for major trophies this year.
Based on the tweets below though, it wasn’t just Atletico fans who were happy, as United supporters joined in and got very excited over a player that they believe will be plying his trade at Old Trafford next season.
As reported by The Daily Star, the Red Devils have been linked with activating Griezmann’s €100m release clause, and based on this fan reaction to his stunning goal, there’s a few Man Utd fans more than ready to welcome the 26-year-old to Manchester…
