His biography, weirdly titled ‘Behind a smile, the life of the Little Prince told by himself’ has a big reveal that will be music to the ears of Jose Mourinho.

Imagine the Red Devils with a trio of French players coming off the back of a World Cup win in Russia.

Obviously there is a long way to go on that front but a United team consisting of Paul Pogba, Antony Martial, Romelu Lukaku, Henrikh Mikhtaryan, Marcus Rashford AND Griezmann might even cause City to think they have a title challenge on their hands.

Griezmann has dropped the biggest hint yet that he could be on his way to the Premier League and actually name drops United as a destination.

“While I have everything to be happy, this doesn’t mean I won’t leave one day,” Griezmann says in his biography.

“I have not made a decision. It all depends on several factors.

“As much as I repeat that I am delighted at Atletico, I have a great coach and great teammates, they regularly ask me about my future.

“I don’t exclude anything, I have nothing against England, apart from the weather and Manchester United is a possibility.”

How much will he cost? That’s anyone’s guess but United will not be shy in opening their chequebooks for one of the most in-demand strikers in the world.

Lukaku and Griezmann could be the best big man-little man partnership since Emile Heskey and Michael Owen circa 2001.

Start saving, Jose.
