Paul Pogba: ‘Happy for Griezmann to sign for rivals Manchester City’

Wait what? 

It’s okay you don’t need to go to the optometrist, you’re reading this correctly. Manchester United star Paul Pogba would be happy to see his France national team-mate Antoine Griezmann sign for rivals Man City.

Mourinho was keen to sign the Atletico Madrid forward, before deciding to stay loyal to Atleti. Atletico were hit with a transfer ban for this summer window, contributing to Griezmann’s decision to stay.

It’s possible that United might make another play for the speedy forward in the next transfer window. The 26 year old scored 16 goals and racked up eight assists in the La Liga this season.

“I wish for his happiness,” said Pogba.

“If that is at Atletico or at City, I will handle it. He is one of the best players in the world.”
