Manchester United target Antoine Griezmann and Romelu Lukaku and more transfer rumours

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has made no secret of his frustrations with his attacking players, and is reportedly set to address the issue to the tune of £160m this summer.
According to the Sun , the United boss is targeting Antoine Griezmann and Romelu Lukaku to reinforce the attack - while keeping Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Old Trafford for another year.
Griezmann remains United's top target and Mourinho is determined to bring the Frenchman to Manchester, even if it means breaking the world record transfer fee for the second summer in a row.
But the report claims that he also sees Lukaku as the ideal support for Ibrahimovic, and is desperate to prevent Chelsea from signing the Everton star, who leads the race for the Premier League Golden Boot.
While the pair are believed to be worth in the region of £160m, United would also have to find room on the wage bill, and the departure of Wayne Rooney could help free up funds for the double deal.
However, the Sun also reports that it could cost around £20m to cut ties with Rooney this summer.
The club's record goal scorer has apparently accepted his Old Trafford career is coming to a close and is keen on a return to Everton.
But Rooney has two years left on his contract and United may be forced to pay some of his forthcoming wages to ensure the move goes through.
