Collymore: Mourinho should sign Higuain over Griezmann

Stan Collymore thinks Manchester United should try to sign Gonzalo Higuain and abandon any plans they had of landing Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann.

Higuain, who plays for Juventus, has scored 32 goals in all competitions this season following his €90 million move from Napoli last summer.

And Collymore thinks Higuain would be a better signing than rumoured target Griezmann as the Argentinian would suit Mourinho’s style of play better.

“United’s campaign would have looked a lot sorrier without the goals and influence of Zlatan Ibrahimovic,” he told the Daily Mirror.

“We keep hearing that Jose Mourinho will sign Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid but he’s not the leader of the line that the United boss likes.

“If he is spending in the region of £100 million he should look instead to Juventus and offer them a quick return on the cash they laid out last season on Gonzalo Higuain.

“The Turin giants paid just north of £70 million for the Argentina international 12 months ago.

“OK, he might be 29 but you are getting a man in his prime who, with the likes of Juve, Real Madrid and Napoli on his CV, knows what playing for a big club is all about.”
