  • Barcelona have reserved the No 7 shirt for Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann

The La Liga giants have posted an official statement in their official website claiming that reports regarding Griezmann's summer move to the Camp Nou are fake.

"FC Barcelona denies reports that have appeared in recent hours in various media referring to Atletico Madrid player Antoine Griezmann, alleging links to our club", the statement read.

Diario Sport suggested Barca and Griezmann have already agreed on personal terms over a summer transfer, adding that if either party broke the deal there would be a "financial penalty".

Griezmann was strongly linked to Manchester United last summer, with Mourinho ultimately pursuing a transfer for Everton forward Romelu Lukaku instead.

The Catalan club's president Josep Maria Bartomeu is a big fan of the player and is leading from the front to help his side secure the France international's signature.


Barcelona have issued a statement denying that the club were interested in signing Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann. There's a good understanding, maybe there have been talks.

Barcelona's decision to come out in public to say there has been no agreement with Griezmann may come as a welcome boost for Manchester City and their manager Pep Guardiola.

Griezmann, 26, signed a new contract with Atletico last June, turning down a move to Manchester United after the La Liga side's appeal against a transfer ban was rejected.

The France global, a long-term Manchester United target, is expected to leave the Spanish capital in the summer despite having only signed an improved contract little over six months ago.
