Man United are hot on the heels of stylish French winger Antoine Griezmann and according to talkSPORT David Moyes must now overcome the challenge of Juventus who have also taken a keen interest in the Real Sociedad attacker.

The 22 year old wide-man is into his fifth season in the Sociedad first team set-up and is considered one of the most consistent performers in the Spanish top tier and has been in fine form thus far this season, scoring eight goals in ten La Liga starts.

With Real Sociedad looking unlikely to progress to the Champions League knock-out stages the Basque side are reportedly ready to consider offers for Griezmann to help balance the books and have therefore had a £25m release clause placed into the youngster’s contract.

David Moyes has watched the likes of Luis Antonio Valencia, Ashley Young and Nani all fail to make an impact this term and the Scot has been reticent about using Wilfried Zaha but may well feel that Griezmann is the man for the job.

The Man United boss is keen to bring in a wide attacker who can weigh in with his fair share of goals whilst also being able to provide the ammunition for the likes of Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney and the former French Under 21 international may be the ideal man to fill the void.

Indeed Griezmann may feel that a high profile move to Old Trafford would help his to secure his first senior French national team cap.
