Manchester United have been dealt a blow as Antoine Griezmann admits playing alongside Neymar and Kylian Mbappe would be a dream.
The Atletico Madrid striker is a top target for Jose Mourinho in the summer.
But it appears his preferred choice would be Paris Saint-Germain.
Asked by Telefoot whether it would be a dream to play in a strikeforce with Neymar and Mbappe, Griezmann simply replied: “Yes.”
Having admitted in a telling interview last summer, that he rated his chances of joining United at six out of ten, he was questioned on whether he speaks to Mourinho on the phone often.
But United fans will disappointed to hear that he answered: “No.”
However, his brother Theo, who is a known Red Devils fan posted a cryptic tweet, suggesting he is praying for a move to Old Trafford.
Griezmann, 26, has not been in great form this season — with just two La Liga goals so far.
In a testament to how much he is struggling, Diego Simeone has recently taken to substituting when Atletico are in need of a goal.
This led to a Twitter rant by Theo, who claimed they are not playing to the France international’s strengths.
