But Griezmann opted to remain loyal to Atletico despite United’s interest, with the Spanish side currently in the middle of a transfer ban until January.

The 26-year-old took to Twitter straight after Manchester United’s 4-0 thrashing of Swansea which put Red fans in a frenzy.

Amongst an angry face emoji, Griezmann also put two ‘call me’ emojis which sparked a Twitter reaction.

One United fan replied: “It can still happen transfer window not closed yet just hand in a transfer request.”

Another made the point that the number seven shirt at Old Trafford is still available.

He said: “Still a number 7 waiting for you fella.”

Others were uploading pictures of the likes of Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku with the caption “you missed out.”

But Mourinho was quick to play down the win and says the real test will come when his side fall behind in a match.

He said: ““The thing I want to happen is for the team to be losing so I can see the way we react emotionally.

“At this moment everything is going in our favour, but it is not always going to be a motorway.

“You can always find difficult journeys and road blocks and we have to be ready for that.”
