Henry offers thoughts on Griezmann to United

Thierry Henry thinks Antoine Griezmann should swap La Liga for the Premier League by joining Manchester United this summer.

Griezmann has been relentlessly linked with a move to Old Trafford over the last year and recent reports suggest that United are prepared to pay his £85million release clause to land him.

And Henry reckons his compatriot would fit in well in the Premier League and has praised his rise to the top of the game.

“I think he’s someone that should come to the Premier League,” Henry said on Sky Sports.

“If he goes to Old Trafford then it’ll be great for them but he’s a player you need, for the league and everyone, for the fans, to be able to see that guy. I know of him for a very long time, he’s been at Sociedad early in his career.

“No one wanted him in France by the way, when you think that he had to go to Sociedad to find his way, that tells you the character of the man and how great a player he is when no one thought he was going to do it.

“For now people talking about him going to Manchester United and what he can bring to the league and not only Manchester United if he goes there, it speaks volumes on how far he came from.

“But yes I think he should come here. Is it Man United? I don’t know but I think he should come to the Premier League.”
