Twitter is known as an unofficial reliable source when it comes to players’ transfer speculations, and the trend continued on weekend when Griezmann took to the social media platform after the victory over relegation-set Aston Villa. Theo Griezmann, the younger brother of Atletico Madrid’s forward, Antoinne tweeted,
“Glory glory Man United”

And has since sent the Red Devils fans into a sort of fantasy as per having his big brother and France international, Antoinne at the Theater of Dreams this Summer. The 25-year-old winger and striker has been in fine form since arriving the Spanish capital from Real Sociedad 2 seasons ago, and his goal-scoring form has seen the likes of Chelsea put him on their radar.
Griezmann single-handedly dumped Barcelona out of the Champions League with his brace during the 2nd leg of the Quarter Finals fixtures between the Spanish duo. With Atletico being a selling club, the future of their best players isn’t always certain at the Vicente Calderon, and with the right fees, Antoinne could be on his way out. His 19-year-old kid brother, a United fan according to his Twitter bio might have given the world a clue as to what could happen soon.
The Red Devils definitely could do with a versatile forward at the moment, as they haven’t been very clinical in front of goals, and could finish the season with the least number of goals they’ve ever finished a season with. Antoinne Griezmann is able to play excellently well on the wings, and he is a proven main striker. A move to the Old Trafford would surely excite his young brother and the faithfuls. But will United make a move?
