Paris Saint Germain forward Edinson Cavani has admitted that he would love to play alongside Atletico's Antoine Griezmann one day, reigniting the Frenchman's exit talk.

Griezmann, 25, has been the subject of intense transfer talk after dazzling for France at Euro 2016.


Premier League sides Manchester United and Chelsea are reportedly keen, but they will have to break the bank as the prolific striker signed a new five-year deal in June.

Ligue 1 champions PSG are also in the hunt, with Cavani even offering to go out for a beer with Griezmann a couple of weeks ago.

While Cavani has now confessed that the French media made the most of his tweet, he would still love to play alongside Griezmann in the future.

"It's the press that said I wanted to invite Antoine Griezmann to Paris," ​FourFourTwo quote the Uruguayan star as saying.

"I sent him a message to take a Uruguay mate. I'd like to play with him one day, he is a great striker and a beautiful person too."

Griezmann has netted nine goal in 19 appearances this season, while Cavani has taken up from where Ibrahimovic left off by scoring 20 goals in as many games so far this season.

However, in spite of Cavani's wonderful form, PSG have struggled compared to last season, sitting in third on 35 points after 16 games, four points adrift of league-leaders Nice.
