Atletico Madrid striker, Antoine Griezmann has admitted he would love to play with France team-mate Paul Pogba “every day”. Though he insists it does not mean he wants to join Manchester United.
Griezmann and Pogba interviewed each other on TV channel, Canal Plus, while currently on international duty with France.
The pair, who are friends were speaking about their time spent together with Les Bleus when Pogba said: “If we could have this every day…”?
“That would be beautiful to play alongside you and win trophies,” Griezmann responded. But he quickly backtracked by saying “but be careful! That doesn’t mean I want to go to Manchester United.”
The forward was close to a move to Manchester United last summer, but the transfer ban imposed on Atletico by FIFA, hampered a potential move.
Reports have suggested the 27-year-old already has a deal in place to join Barcelona in the summer despite Atletico’s attempts to offer him a renewed contract on his £193,000-a-week wage.
Both players were in action for France on Friday when they squandered a two-goal lead to lose 3-2 to Columbia. Though Pogba was a 65th minute subtitute, the Atletico man played for 83 minutes.
The Les Blues would seek redemption on Tuesday when they face World Cup hosts, Russia in Saint Petersburg.
