Antoine Griezmann does not want to hear about departing Barcelona. According to programme 'Tot costa' on 'Catalunya Radio', the Frenchman is not thinking of leaving the Catalans next summer.
This information comes after rumours of Griezmann leaving have intensified. The need to reduce their debt and the striker could be sold in the coming months to get money.
The same goes for Philippe Coutinho. Both are players with value on the transfer market and the board believe they can be sold. They cost the club a lot of money, but Barca need to sell in the summer.
However, despite their being speculation over Griezmann leaving, Barca's '17' is not willing to leave. The cited media outlet says that the Frenchman is at ease and calm with regards to his future.
Griezmann has three years left on his contract, which expires in June 2024. While the club believe he is one of those most likely to leave, he will not do anything himself to leave. If Barca want him to leave, he will have to look elsewhere though.
The former Atletico Madrid man is convinced that he can still become the star he was at his old club and prove why Barca paid 120 million euros for him. His numbers have not been shocking, but they are not as good as expected. He has not been key in the big matches.
Joan Laporta wants to go all out to get Haaland, so Griezmann's sale would not just be to balance the books, but also to try and make a big signing. Coutinho could also be sold either separately or as part of a deal. The Brazilian has been linked with Arsenal.
What happens to Griezmann in the end depends on Mateu Alemany. Laporta has given him full control to build together with Ronald Koeman and the rest of the staff. One of the questions will be what to do with Griezmann?
