Griezmann's future has been the source of much speculation over the past 12 months and, after last summer being heavily linked with Manchester United, he has emerged as a possible big-money signing for La Liga champions Barca.

Asked if Griezmann is the top summer target Barca need, Messi told Spanish newspaper Sport: "I don't know if he's a priority".

Last weekend, Atletico Madrid forward Griezmann said he would confirm his plans before France begin their World Cup campaign against Australia on Saturday.

Griezmann has been dedicating a lot of time to his decision, and reports claim that he's turned to French teammates while preparing for the World Cup for advice. Let us know in the comments section below. And Griezmann is one of them. The deal, should he sign, will make him the club's highest paid player; and the entire club has been endorsing the deal since it was offered - from the president right down to the kit man.


"I can only say that to win the Champions League you have to have the best players". That depends on the signing committee and the coach.

Atletico's number 10 shirt was last worn by Belgian winger Yannick Carrasco prior to his shock move to Chinese Super League club Dalian Yifang in February of this year. "And he is very good".

Going into the final, Atletico Madrid have won the competition in 2010 and 2012 and have lost in two Champions League finals since. "It's true that the Champions League excited everyone because of what it means to win it, but there's no need to take anything away from what we have done".
