Manchester United can sign Gareth Bale and Antoine Griezmann in the summer transfer window believes football consultant Ian McGarry.
The Red Devils have been linked with the two Madrid stars as a part of Ole Gunnar Solskajer’s plans to revamp his squad for the upcoming season.
Griezmann recently announced in a farewell video that he’ll be leaving Atletico at the end of the season after years at the club.

While Gareth Bale is surplus to coach Zinedine Zidane’s requirements and is very likely to depart the Bernabeu in the summer.
And, MacGarry seems to think United can get both the deals over the line before the transfer window shuts.
“This being a very big transfer window for Manchester United and Ed Woodward, I can see there being a kind of drink at the last-chance saloon, putting Griezmann and Bale together up front in a three with Rashford or Martial,” he said on The Transfer Window podcast.
“I can see that happening because it’s been so incoherent before that the idea you can throw in a couple of superstar names and hope it’s gonna work out for you does not seem beyond the realms of possibility for me.”
However, his colleague Duncan Castles was not much into it as according to him, signing both players could raise United’s wage bill off the charts.
“I think that’s the issue, it would cost a lot of money.
“While I see Manchester United doing something dramatic and a little considered in this window, I’d be very surprised if the Glazers allowed Ed Woodward and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to spend that much in terms of wages on Bale and Griezmann simultaneously.”
