Griezmann ends goal drought, but Atletico held by Girona

Lionel Messi Barcelona La Liga

Spanish daily Sport had reported: "The Atletico Madrid forward has agreed to join Barcelona and will be under (coach) Ernesto Valverde's orders next season".

La Liga side Barcelona have released a statement to deny that the club are close to signing Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann.

Antoine Griezmann's first goal in six league games wasn't enough for Atletico Madrid as they drew 1-1 with Girona on Saturday and gave Barcelona a chance to extend their lead at the top of La Liga.

In their statement, Barcelona wanted to make it very clear that they reiterate all their respect for Atlético de Madrid, Griezmann's current club.

Catalan daily, Mundo Deportivo, also reported back in December that Griezmann's family had lunch with the Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu to smooth the way for the transfer.

Griezmann will, instead, move to Barcelona, if Sport's report is to be believed, where he will join an already formidable attack consisting of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho.

He lay down in a heap after being clattered by Girona keeper Bono as he headed on for Griezmann, but it was the stopper who came off worse and had to be substituted at halftime.

Some reports also suggest that Griezmann is still hoping against hope for a Manchester United move.

The France worldwide, 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.
