Barcelona President Met Griezmann Representatives

Collins Ndlovu:

Barcelona: Barcelona President  Josep Maria Bartomue has admitted  he met  representatives of Atletico Madrid  striker  Antoine Griezmann last year October.

The French-born striker has indicated he wants his future decided before this summer’s World Cup after Barca were forced to deny  in January  they already agreed on a deal to sign Griezmann.

“We had conversations with his representatives, as we have with other representatives,” Bartomue told Spanish  Radio, he said this happened  last year October , a meeting, nothing more and it should not give rise  to speculation,”

Griezmann has scored 30 goals in 51 games this season and can end  the campaign  by winning  the Europa League, with Atletico up against  Marseille in the final later this month.

Any deal with Barcelona would place further doubt the future of Ousmane Dembele, who has endured a difficult  first season at Barcelona.

Dembele joined Barcelona  from Borrusia Dortmund for  147 euros  last year and Bartomeu insists the 20 year old will not be leaving this summer.
