Don Balon recently suggested United could still be in for Griezmann, but he went to great lengths tonight to explain his decision to stay at Atletico.

Jose Mourinho surely knows he needs more options in that department, with Alexis Sanchez struggling to impress and Anthony Martial’s future in doubt as he’s linked with Chelsea by the Telegraph.

Don Balon have also stated United have stepped up talks over signing Bale from Real Madrid, and he is a popular choice as an alternative among fans on Twitter tonight.

In fact, many seem pretty confident a deal will happen for the Wales international, so they’ll hope these tweets don’t come back to haunt them…
