Arsenal may have been dealt a huge blow in their pursuit of France international and Athletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann, after the player revealed his relationship with Paul Pogba.
Arsenal and Manchester United have been chasing the player and it is believed that the player will make a Premier League switch next summer.
Jose Mourinho have been reportedly sending scouts to keep tabs on the player but Arsenal made enquiries for him during the summer.
The French forward has been speaking about his friendship with Pogba and how he tunes in to the Red Dvils’ games to see how he is getting on.
Griezmann explained: “The Euros brought us even closer – he’s a really nice guy
have“We send messages, Snapchats. When he plays for his club, I try to watch to see if he’s had a good game or not.”
Giezmann has recently signed a new contract at Atletico which has taken his release clause up to £87.5m.
He could favour a move to Old Trafford to link up with his close friend Pogba.
