His replies were flooded by Manchester United fans asking Theo to convince his older sibling to sign for the Red Devils before the transfer window closes in England at 6pm on Tuesday.

However, Griezmann is happy playing under Diego Simeone at the Vicente Calderon, where he scored 25 goals in 54 appearances for Atleti last term.

This isn’t the first time this summer that Theo Griezmann has got Manchester United fans excited with his social media activity.

Last month he posted a series of tweets expressing his love for the Red Devils, fuelling speculation that his brother could be on his way to Old Trafford.

Griezmann's cryptic tweet

Antoine, meanwhile, set tongues wagging on Monday by posting a cryptic tweet about something being revealed or possibly announced on Tuesday.

There’s still enough time for Manchester United to make a late move for Griezmann, but it seems more likely that the Frenchman will still be an Atletico Madrid player come 6:01pm this evening.
