Lionel Messi Speaks About Antoine Griezmann Again
FC Barcelona are often criticised for getting their stars to publicly speak about players who are linked with the club, but that has not stopped superstar Lionel Messi, who has once again discussed the Blaugrana's potential signing of Antoine Griezmann.
The Frenchman has been heavily linked with a move to the Catalan giants in recent months, with many reports suggesting this could be the transfer window in which he joins Barca.
Messi, who has previously said he would welcome Griezmann at the Camp Nou, has again insisted the 27-year-old is one of the best in the business and that he would suit the Catalans.
"I have always said it," he told Mundo Deportivo.
"It is easy to get along with great players and Griezmann is one of the best, he is going through an exceptional time in his career.
"The coach will then look at how he fits everyone in, but he is obviously a great player and we would click together.
"Whether Griezmann comes or not is up to the coach, it is still not 100%, but obviously the more quality we have, the better."
Griezmann scored 29 goals and assisted a further 15 strikes in 49 games for Atletico this past season, and is said to be close to deciding on his future.
