Fernando Torres wants Antoine Griezmann to remain at Atletico Madrid

Barcelona have been heavily linked with Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann and it appears that the French worldwide is the Catalan club's prime target for next summer.

"If Bartomeu met with Griezmann's family as the newspapers say, then there may well have been an approach", Amor said.

The Spanish club have reported Barca to Federation Internationale de Football Association over their alleged pursuit of their star man, who is understood to have shut down an approach from the Premier League outfit in the summer.

However, in this case declarations by Barcelona's Director of Institutional Relations, Guillermo Amor on Spanish TV on Sunday night that the club had been in contact with Griezmann's representatives over a possible move, clearly angered Atletico.

The Madrid based side pointed out that Griezmann extended his contract with them until the end of June 2022 in the summer.

Despite the fact that Barca and Atletico have worked well together in the past, this ordeal could harm the Blaugrana's chances of signing the France worldwide.

"I know that he needs to grow". There's a good understanding, maybe there have been talks.

I have had good and bad times against them", he said, in quotes reported by the Evening Standard. But deep into stoppage time, Smith then bagged a dramatic victor sending City to the last four.


"We're obliged to have contact with players".

"Griezmann is still with us and we have to enjoy him", he told Marca.

If found guilty, Barcelona risk being banned from signing players for the second time in the past five years.

Barcelona would benefit from someone like Griezmann, who is proven in La Liga and at an age where he can be part of their attack for many years to come.

Griezmann, 26, looked set to move to Manchester United last summer but performed a U-turn at the last minute.

"If you look at (Greizmann), at Atletico he needs to play with a No.9".
