Antoine Griezmann has found himself surrounded by speculation linking him to United yet again, and this time, his own brother has sparked the fire.
If fellow French teammate Paul Pogba hugging Griezmann in the dressing room after the national team’s win against Wales wasn’t enough, Theo Griezmann has now found yet another way to excite the United fans.
Theo shared a photo of Old Trafford on social media site Twitter, with some praying hand emoticons. However, he soon removed the post, and then deactivated his account altogether. This in turn has caused a lot of speculation.
All this comes after Antoine, who was on the verge of joining the Red Devils this summer, chose to stay put at Atletico Madrid after the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) chose to uphold the La Liga giants’ transfer ban.
The France international went on to sign a new contract, but is now back in the news, with reports stating he might be on his way to Old Trafford next season. And Theo’s recent tweet has not only sent the fans in a frenzy, but has also kept rumours circulating.
The 26-year-old is valued highly by Jose Mourinho, who could set the forward up alongside Romelu Lukaku to tear up teams in the Premier League as well as Europe.
For now, though, the star forward will be eager to give his all for Atletico and salvage their season, and continue to excite his fans. Consistency, in return, will keep fans in Manchester on their feet, as they will hope Theo’s prayer in the tweet does come true.
