Will Antoine Griezmann join Manchester United this summer?
The Antoine Griezmann to Manchester United rumours have been rife for some time now.
In recent weeks, Griezmann’s chances of joining Manchester United appear to have increased somewhat.
Even before the Europa League final, Griezmann rated his chances of joining Manchester United this summer at 6/10.
Antoine Griezmann’s social media hints
On the day of the Europa League final between Manchester United and Ajax, Theo Griezmann, Antoine’s brother, posted a good luck Tweet to the English side.
And, ever since Manchester United beat Ajax and reached the Champions League next season, the Griezmann gossip has gone up a notch.
In the aftermath of the win in Stockholm, Griezmann was tipped to join Manchester United within three weeks before he goes on honeymoon.
And, Griezmann even seemed to drop a social media hint on Paul Pogba’s Instagram page to further fuel the rumours.
Alexandre Lacazette returns to the France squad
On Monday, the France squad met up to prepare for upcoming matches against Paraguay (friendly), Sweden (World Cup qualifier) and England (friendly).
Amongst the players in the France squad was Alexandre Lacazette who is expected to leave Lyon this summer.
Lacazette has long been tipped to join Atletico Madrid this summer, where he would play alongside Antoine Griezmann.
Griezmann & Lacazette together again
For many in the Spanish press, the strike duo of Griezmann and Lacazette is an enticing prospect for Atletico Madrid in their new stadium and one that could keep Manchester United at bay.
On Monday, Griezmann posted two pictures on Instagram of himself with Lacazette. This has been seen as a signal that the pair are planning for Atletico Madrid next season.
Or, Griezmann was simply happy that Lacazette is back in the France squad?
Much also depends on the current transfer ban being served by Atletico. It will be an interesting summer…
