Antoine Griezmann and Paul Pogba are best friends. There is no denying that and with such a close friendship comes speculation.

The Atletico Madrid attacker has been speaking about his desire to play with Pogba at club level and has expressed his interest in Manchester United.

He quickly rebutted the interested by saying he didn’t see himself moving to a new club yet but he went back again and said that he would love to play alongside Pogba some day.

"I always ask Paul Pogba about Manchester United," Griezmann told Sky Sports News Germany via ESPNFC.

"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.''

Is this the beginning of the end of Diego Simeone’s great Atletico Madrid side?
