Paul Pogba spent some downtime with Antoine Griezmann over the weekend to fuel the speculation linking the attacker with a move to Manchester United.

Pogba was the star of the show for the Red Devils as he scored two second-half goals to help inspire Manchester United to a 3-2 comeback win over Manchester City in Saturday’s derby clash at The Etihad.

The French midfielder was named as the man of the match for his solid display as Jose Mourinho’s men claimed the three points against their rivals to put Manchester City’s title celebrations on hold.

Atletico Madrid star Griezmann has long been touted as a possible target for Manchester United and he was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford early on in the summer transfer window last year.

He even rated his chances of signing for the Red Devils as “six out of 10” when asked about a possible move last May.

It remains to be seen whether he will indeed be a target for the Red Devils this summer.

But Manchester United fans will certainly be hoping that Pogba has been trying to talk up the possibility of a move for the midfielder to Old Trafford after he spent some downtime with him in recent days.

Pogba will be hoping to feature for Manchester United when the Red Devils return to Premier League action on Sunday with a home clash against West Brom.
