Paul Pogba Said To Be Texting Antoine Griezmann Every Day To Lure Him To Old Trafford

Manchester United are using midfielder Paul Pogba to lure Antoine Griezmann to Old Trafford, the Daily Record say.
Pogba, who is currently the world’s most expensive player could see his price tag beaten if United were to activate Antoine Griezmann’s release clause to bring the Frenchman to the club. United are said to be using the friendship between the pair in an attempt to lure Griezmann to the club, as they continue to restore their reputation in the Premier League after failing to challenge for the title since they won it in 2013, under Sir Alex Ferguson.
Paul Pogba is “talking to the boy almost every day to push him to come”, according to the Daily Record. If Manchester United were able to land the Atletico forward’s signature, it wouldn’t be that big of a shock. Both Griezmann and his brother are said to be Manchester United fans and Antoine himself recently spoke about how he dreams of playing with Pogba at club level.
Manchester United, who were recently named as the richest club in the world, have all the spending power needed to tempt Atletico Madrid into selling and the landing of Antoine Griezmann would not only be a colossal step on the way to restoring themselves to the best again, but like Paul Pogba, Griezmann is a hugely marketable player, so the José Mourinho.
