Antoine Griezmann: Atletico Madrid 'fed up' with Barcelona's pursuit of striker

Antoine Griezmann: Atletico Madrid 'fed up' with Barcelona's pursuit of striker

Atletico Madrid's French forward Antoine Griezmann (R) celebrates after scoring against Leganes... on February 28, 2018.

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has revealed that he met Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann's agent past year, but refused to divulge anything more.

FC Barcelona confirmed talks over a potential move for Atletico Madrid attacking talisman Antoine Griezmann has taken place after initially denying a deal has been struck. "And Atletico know the player will be leaving at the end of the season", Cadena Cope radio station announced without attributing a source.

Marin added that Bartomeu's comments about Griezmann in the build-up to the Europa League final between Atletico and Marseille on 16 May showed an "absolute lack of respect". He admitted holding conversations with Rojiblancos president Enrique Cerezo and their chief executive Miguel Ángel Gil Marín, but suggested they never discussed Griezmann. "The important thing is that we work in peace".

"I saw Griezmann last summer", he said, according to Sport.

"I can not tell you anything else because I do not know anything else".

Barca coach Ernesto Valverde on Tuesday described Griezmann as a "great player". We met with him like we meet with other players, but we didn't have lunch together.

Barcelona also won the Copa del Rey but was knocked out of the UEFA Champions League in the quarterfinals by AS Roma after squandering a 4-1 first-leg lead.

Messi scored his 33rd goal of the season in La Liga as Barca drew 2-2 with Real Madrid on Sunday to stay unbeaten in the Spanish top flight this term. "We have a relationship with his representative like we have with other representatives", he further added. "We have our own objectives".

The Frenchman's contract runs until 2021 but his release clause stands at just £54m, prompting interest from Man United and a series of other European suitors.
