Paul Pogba: If Antoine Griezmann Signed For Man City I Would...
Manchester United superstar Paul Pogba has revealed how he would react if Antoine Griezmann joined rivals Manchester City.
The Atletico Madrid striker was heavily tipped to join Jose Mourinho's Red Devils ahead of next season, but after the Spanish club's transfer ban was upheld, he announced he would not leave the Rojiblancos after all, and extended his stay with the club.
Pogba, the attacker's France teammate, was recently asked how he would feel if Griezmann joined City one day, and he responded by insisting he will always wish happiness upon those close to him.
"Griezmann? I wish for his happiness. If that is at Atletico, at City, I will handle it. He is one of the best players in the world," he told Telefoot.
"If Zlatan is happy elsewhere, then I am happy for him.
"For my first season we got three trophies and a place in the Champions League, which was the main objective. I'm going to the Champions League, that's what I wanted.
"Next year, the objective is the Premier League. There is also the Champions League and we will have to give that proper attention."
Griezmann scored 26 goals and assisted a further 12 strikes in 53 games for Atletico last season.
