Paul Pogba has taken to social media to send a special birthday message to Antoine Griezmann after the Atletico Madrid attacker turned 27 on Wednesday.

The France forward has been strongly linked with a transfer to Manchester United in the past and he was heavily touted as a possible target for the Red Devils last summer.

Indeed, the player himself rated his chances of sealing a move to Old Trafford as “six out of 10” last summer but a switch failed to materialise.

Manchester United midfielder Pogba is close friends with his France international team-mate and the Red Devils star was quick to wish Griezmann a happy birthday after he turned 27.

Pogba posted the picture above on his personal Instagram story as he dedicated a post to his France team-mate.

Griezmann has been in superb form for Atletico Madrid this season, scoring 17 goals and making eight assists in 26 La Liga games for the Spanish side.

Meanwhile, Pogba will be hoping to feature for Manchester United when the Red Devils return to Premier League action after the international break with a home clash against Swansea City on 31 March.

The Red Devils are aiming to try and win the FA Cup this season after they beat Brighton last weekend in the last eight.
