Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann, reveals his dream to play with Manchester United star Paul Pogba, at club level. The duo play together for France, but the former Real Sociedad talent admits that playing with him at club level would be an incredible experience.

The in-form forward also mentioned Alexandre Lacazette as the other person he would like to play with at club level. The reason he gave for choosing the two is because of their abilities as a player and a good personality that they possess.

Speaking to Goal, he said: “I'd sign Alexandre Lacazette or Pogba. I love how Alexandre plays and he is a really good guy," Griezmann said. "The same for Paul – he is a great player and a good mate. I hope to play with one of the two one day."

When asked about whose goal celebration is better, the Frenchman chose his Hotline Bling move over Paul Pogba’s dab.

"You have to ask some other folk but I’m going to say mine,” he proudly admitted to Goal.

Antoine Griezmann then went on to reveal that he often receives photos of his celebrations via social network websites and that he has a good laugh about it. He also stated that watching his Hotline Bling celebration on FIFA is like a dream come true for him.

“I often receive photos and videos on my social networks and it makes me laugh. My celebration is even in FIFA! It’s a dream for me and I hope that kids can see it as often as possible.”

Finally, Griezmann admitted that Paul Pogba might be the better dancer among the two, but he also likes to sing and dance in his car.


“Paul dances a lot more than me and is a lot better. But from time to time I like to dance and sing in my car, like everyone,”
