The younger sibling of the Atletico Madrid star has again fanned the flames of speculation with a tweet about Memphis Depay

Antoine Griezmann's brother Theo has again set Manchester United fans' hearts racing.

Pogba hails 'brother' Griezmann

The Atletico Madrid star's youngster sibling has shown his support for Jose Mourinho's side in the past, most recently in a series of now-deleted tweets while watching United beat Feyenoord in the Europa League in November.

Antoine has been long been linked with a move to Old Trafford, even revealing recently that he would like to play with France team-mate Paul Pogba on a more regular basis, with speculation mounting over a possible summer switch from Spain.

And Theo has been playing his part again, posting an image of Memphis Depay - United's now former No.7 - speaking after making his debut for Lyon with the caption: "Sorry Memphis I think Old Trafford is better!"

United are reportedly ready to pay Griezmann's €100 million release clause to bring the Liga star to Old Trafford but Atletico president Enrique Cerezo last week insisted a move is not on the cards.

"There are many offers," Cerezo said. "I don't know what will come of Manchester United's interest. What I can say though is that Griezmann will be an Atlético player for a long time."
