Antoine Griezmann
Antoine Griezmann and Paul Pogba are France teammates.

Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann says he would like to play alongside France teammate and Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba at club level in the future.

Griezmann and Pogba, currently away on international duty with France, have posted a number of photographs together on social media recently, with one on Tuesday showing them sat on the back of a golf buggy, with the caption: “End of the day, we go back to the castle.”

It has been reported that United are looking to sign Griezmann next summer as manager Jose Mourinho seeks to strengthen his attacking options, and the presence of Pogba at Old Trafford could help to lure the Atletico player to the Premier League.

Antoine Griezmann’s admittance to asking Paul Pogba about Man United leads Shaka Hislop to believe he’s pursuing a move.

“I always ask Paul Pogba about Manchester United,” Griezmann told Sky Sport News in Germany.

“I think they are a huge club with a really good infrastructure. I ask Paul about some of the players, and if they’re really that good, or if Jose Mourinho is really that good.

“You hear a lot of things [speculation] about Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain but right now I don’t see me moving to a new club. But it would be awesome to play alongside Paul one day.”

A source close to United told ESPN FC in the summer that the club were interested in bringing Griezmann to Old Trafford.
