The Portuguese has confirmed neither player will feature against Reading tomorrow. "I will allow them to leave the club if the right offer comes," he said.

Griezmann could move to Man Utd
Jose Mourinho’s project at Manchester United appears to be taking shape after some early teething problems, but it appears the Portuguese is not resting on his laurels.

The Sun go as far as saying Griezmann is United’s No 1 transfer target and they are willing to make him the club’s top earner, along with Pogba.
