Antoine Griezmann has spoken of his desire to someday play alongside international team-mate Paul Pogba at club level.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea have been linked with big-money summer moves for the Atlético Madrid superstar, and his latest comments will have been well received at Old Trafford.

"I always ask Paul Pogba about Manchester United," Griezmann told Sky 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."

United forked out a world record £89 million fee to sign Pogba from Juventus in the summer transfer window.

The 23-year-old midfielder formed a strong friendship with Griezmann while on international duty together at Euro 2016, with the Atléti man admitting that the pair grew closer after being dropped by Les Bleus boss Didier Deschamps for a group-stage game.

If the Red Devils have designs on pairing Griezmann with Pogba in Manchester, they will have to come close to another record fee as the former Real Sociedad forward has a €100 million (£88 million) release clause in his contract at the Vicente Calderón.
