Antoine Griezmann was relaxing with Arsenal signing Alexandre Lacazette in the France dressing room following a training session on Tuesday.

The Atletico Madrid forward was linked with a move to Manchester United in the summer transfer window but a deal fell through after France international opted to stay at the Spanish club following their transfer ban.

Indeed, Griezmann’s show of loyalty and Uefa’s sanction had a direct effect on Lacazette, who had reportedly been lined up to replace his compatriot in Diego Simeone’s impressive Atletico side.

With Griezmann decided to stay at Atletico to help out los Rojiblancos until their ban is lifted, Arsenal swooped with a club-record £52m offer to sign Lacazette from Lyon.

The 26-year-old has wasted no time having a big impact at Arsenal after scoring four times in his opening seven Premier League games to pay back some of his price tag.

And Lacazette is now in a position to give Griezmann some advice about a potential switch to the Premier League amid continued talk of Manchester United signing the Atletico star next summer.

The Red Devils secured the £75m signing of Romelu Lukaku in the summer after missing out on Griezmann. The Belgian forward has already scored 10 goals in nine games in all competitions.
