Barcelona President Distances Themselves From Griezmann
Barcelona have held no talks with Antoine Griezmann regarding a move to Camp Nou, claims club president Josep Maria Bartomeu, with there “nothing to announce” when it comes to the Atletico Madrid striker.
A switch to Catalunya was expected to be made by the French forward this summer.
He came close to treading that path in 2018, only to take the decision to remain in Madrid after helping France to World Cup glory.
A change of heart has been made since making that call, with Griezmann now eager to take on a new challenge.
No effort has been made, though, by Barca to put a deal in place, with Bartomeu reiterating that there is no substance to the transfer talk at this stage.
He told RAC1: “There’s nothing to announce.
“We’ve always said the same. We haven’t spoken to him. There’s nothing to it.
“We’ll see how the market changes in the next few days and weeks.”
