Antoine Griezmann enjoyed Liverpool’s Champions League celebrations

As you can see in the picture above, Griezmann waved at Roberto Firmino during his streaming of the parade on Instagram.

The Independent have linked the France international with Manchester United and report that he has a £108million release clause – which might not necessarily be beyond Liverpool’s financial reach after some recent big spending on the likes of Virgil van Dijk and Alisson.

Players from other clubs will of course sometimes send messages of congratulations to players on other teams, but there’s usually a connection of some kind to speak of.

Griezmann may, for instance, have paid attention to Man Utd stuff like this in the past due to his friendship with France international team-mate Paul Pogba.

Here, however, it’s not clear why he might pay particular interest to Liverpool, so maybe that’s why this lot are allowing themselves to get a little carried away…
