Manchester United have had a mixed start to the new Premier League season and given that this is Jose Mourinho’s final season, several reports have claimed the Portuguese will make an exit pretty soon.

While some reports say, Jose is not too happy with the United management and wants to head out of the club, others claim that the club’s hierarchy wants him out.

Either way, former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has been tipped to replace Mourinho if and when he moves out of Old Trafford and now a sensational report claims that the Frenchman has already marked out his first transfer target.

According to a report in the AS, Zidane is already planning his moves for Manchester United and has informed the board about the first player he wishes to sign when he takes charge of the club.

As per the report, Zidane wants to bring in Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann during the next summer transfer window.

Griezmann being linked with the Premier League outfit is nothing new as all throughout the summer various reports had claimed the World Cup winner was close to joining Man United.

But then it seemed as if the French International was on his way to Barcelona only to sign a new deal with Atletico Madrid.

Now once again Antoine Griezmann is being linked with Manchester United with Zinedine Zidane wanting him at Old Trafford in case he becomes their manager.

Griezmann has also been linked with David Beckham’s new MLS side Inter Miami with the forward claiming that he will move to America is he gets a call from Beckham.
