The 25-year-old former Real Socieded forward and the Manchester United midfielder have posted a number of photographs together on social media recently as a sign of their friendship.

Griezmann shared a photograph of himself and his compatriot Pogba on Twitter on Tuesday in which they were sat on the back of a golf buggy, with the caption: "End of the day, we go back to the Castle."

The pair are currently on international duty together ahead of Friday's World Cup qualifier against Sweden at Stade de France.

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 may prove pivotal in a move to the Premier League for the Atleti man.

Griezmann, quoted on dailystar.co.uk, said: "I always ask Paul Pogba about Manchester United. 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 St 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."
