Antoine Griezmann has all the information one needs about the biggest transfer story of the summer – the one featuring his France teammate, Paul Pogba.
The duo were almost inseparable whilst representing their country together in the Euro 2016, wherein they managed to finish as runners-up. They may not have added the European medals to their trophy cabinets, but their friendship surely grew, and to such an extent, that Griezmann now knows where Pogba will be playing next season.
Paul Pogba looks all set to leave Juventus this summer, and has been linked with potential big-money moves to Paris Saint Germain, FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Manchester United ever since the 2015-16 season came to an end.
But the latest reports state that the Frenchman will either be joining his fellow countryman Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid, or that he will be breaking the world transfer record by making a sensational return to Manchester United.
Amidst all the speculation, Spanish outlet Don Balon has revealed that Antoine Griezmann is in the know about what Pogba’s next destination is.
As per the report, Pogba confessed to Griezmann about which club he will be joining following the conclusion of Euro 2016, and that club is none other than Manchester United.
The 23-year-old midfielder told the Atletico Madrid star that he would have preferred to come to La Liga, by signing for Real Madrid. But, since the chances of a move to Spain were fading rapidly, he had opted to make a return to Manchester instead.
And it indeed looks very likely that Pogba will be joining the Red Devils soon, with numerous reliable journalists, like Spain’s Guillem Balague and Italy’s Carlo Laudisa, stating that the negotiations are ongoing.
In fact, English sports reporter Ian Abrahams went to the extent of stating that Manchester United have decided to delay the announcement of the official squad numbers until they complete the £105m signing of Paul Pogba.
