Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has insisted that the Antoine Griezmann transfer saga is not over yet.
The France forward has been Jose Mourinho’s top summer target, but according to reports, Griezmann has told the Old Trafford club that he wouldn’t be joining, after Atletico Madrid saw their transfer ban upheld.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) verdict, means Atletico will not be able to register new players until January 2018 .
However, despite this set-back, Giggs doesn’t think the deal is off, as United are in desperate need of a forward.
“I’m not so sure if we’ve heard the end of that. I think it’ll be ebb and flow during the summer, there’ll be lots of rumours,” the Wales legend told Sky Sports.
“United need goals. All the teams I played in there were goals from everywhere.
“Sometimes you’d rely on a centre-forward for a season, but more often than not you had midfielders, even defenders, wingers and obviously the forwards all contributing”, he added.
