Griez­mann ad­mits de­sire to play along­side United star Pogba

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

Atletico Madrid star An­toine Griez­mann has hinted at in­ter­est in a fu­ture Manch­ester United move af­ter ad­mit­ting he would love to play along­side Paul Pogba.

The France in­ter­na­tional has reg­u­larly been linked with a move away from the Vi­cente Calderon fol­low­ing his su­perb form in the past 12 months, with United and Paris Saint-Ger­main among those most reg­u­larly ru­moured to be in­ter­ested.

Griez­mann and Pogba have posted a num­ber of pic­tures to­gether on so­cial me­dia, with the lat­est show­ing them re­turn­ing to their France train­ing base on the back of a golf buggy.

The duo's friend­ship has fre­quently been cited as a key fac­tor in any at­tempt by Jose Mour­inho to tempt the Euro 2016 Golden Boot-win­ner to Old Traf­ford.

While Griez­mann in­sists he is happy with life at Atletico and is not ac­tively look­ing for a move, he has sug­gested the chance to play along­side Pogba at club level in fu­ture could be tough to turn down.

“A fu­ture trans­fer de­pends on how I feel,” he told Sky Sport in Ger­many. “Right now I'm a fa­ther so a move to an­other city would not be the right thing. I'll see if I want to do some­thing else in the fu­ture, though.

“Right now I'm very happy at Atletico and I still want to win tro­phies with this club.

"I al­ways ask Pogba about United. I think Manch­ester United is a huge club with a re­ally good in­fra­struc­ture. I ask Paul about some of the play­ers - if they're re­ally that good and if Mour­inho's re­ally that good.

"You hear a lot but in the end it's the same with United as it is with PSG. Right now, I don't see me mov­ing to a new club. It would be awe­some to play to­gether with Paul one day."
