Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann has identified Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba and Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette as his dream signings for the Spanish team.

Griezmann, 25, is one of the most sought-after players in world football. After scoring 32 goals in all competitions last season, he has been tipped to challenge for the Ballon d'Or award once Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo's era of dominance ends.

The France international even overshadowed the duo at La Liga's recent 2015-16 season gala, claiming the league's best player award ahead of the Barcelona and Real Madrid superstars.

While he is often the subject of transfer gossip columns, the France international was asked by Goal who he would sign for Atletico if he were handed a blank cheque, and picked two of his countrymen.

"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."

Griezmann has already spoken this week about the prospect of playing alongside Pogba at club level, inevitably fuelling talk of a possible move to Old Trafford.

While at France's training camp at Clairefontaine this week Griezmann has been taking the chance to quiz Pogba on life at United, and it could be Jose Mourinho's side that hold the advantage if he decides to leave Atletico.

Speaking to Sky Germany, Griezmann said: "I always ask Paul Pogba about Manchester United. I think they are a huge club with a really good infrastructure. I ask Paul about some of the players and if they are really that good, or if Jose Mourinho is really that good.

"You hear a lot of things about Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain but right now I don't see me moving to a new club. But it would be awesome to play alongside Paul one day."
