Man United now frontrunners for three Atletico Madrid stars
Manchester United looked imperious in victory over Chelsea on Sunday, and the Red Devils should be an even stronger proposition next term, with the Red Devils just 8/11 to sign Antoine Griezmann this summer.
But the France international is far from the only Atletico Madrid man being linked with a move to Old Trafford, with two of his teammates now short prices for a United switch.
Admittedly, many eyes are on the 26-year-old has netted a sensational 24 goals in 44 games this term – a record which has unsurprisingly piqued the interest of some of Europe’s biggest clubs. And it’s United who look set to be the winners in that tussle.
However, talented goalkeeper Jan Oblak is 6/4 to follow in the footsteps of David De Gea who left the Vicente Calderon for Old Trafford in 2012.
And that price could be cut again if the Spaniard finally makes a much-touted move to Real Madrid in the coming months.
There’s also 7/4 on offer for Jose Mourinho to secure the signature of Belgian wing wizard Yannick Carrasco, who boasts 14 goals to his name this season – as well as netting in last year’s Champions League final.
Our traders seem sure that at least one Colchoneros ace will head to Old Trafford this summer, with odds of 1/2 on offer for any Atletico player to join the Red Devils, while 10/1 says they bag all of the aforementioned trio in the coming transfer window.
Meanwhile, it’s a 4/1 shot that any member of the United squad head the other way – most likely in a makeweight deal.
A Ladbrokes spokesperson said: “It’s less Madrid and more MadBid for Mourinho this summer as far as we’re concerned, with the United gaffer keen to splash the cash at the Vicente Calderon.”
