Manchester United’s season is over, now it’s the long, hard summer break where it’s down to Edward Woodward and his staff to get Jose Mourinho the players he wants. Antoine Griezmann seems to be one of the guys on the list, and now the man himself could have dropped a big hint via a simple social media post.
Paul Pogba posted a video of himself on Instagram, with the caption ‘next season’. Shortly after the video went live, a certain Antoine Griezmann decided to ‘like’ the video… That’s according to journalist Jonas Giaever, who shared the picture via his social media account. Shortly after, mainstream English media picked up on it too.

This could be something out of nothing, but in this modern age, we’ve seen social media dropping hints like this in the past that have turned out to be true. It’s intriguing because the two are good friends, and Griezmann’s recent comments hint that he could well want to join this great club if the opportunity does arise.
I’d love to see Griezmann make the move to Old Trafford. He’s a sublime footballer, and in a front line alongside the likes of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba, it could be devastating.
If the deal does happen, it definitely wouldn’t come cheap and Manchester United would have to pay through the roof to lure him to the Theatre of Dreams. Hopefully, we’ll hear some concrete news soon.
