Barcelona deny Griezmann signing rumours

Barca's club-record signing Philippe Coutinho will instead be assigned the No 14 shirt

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".

"Barcelona strongly deny the information which has appeared in different media outlets in recent hours in reference to Atletico Madrid player Antoine Griemzmann and a supposed move to our club", the Catalans said in a statement.

Barcelona have confirmed they have no agreement in place to sign Antoine Griezmann after reports surfaced on Saturday the La Liga leaders have agreed a deal with the Atletico Madrid star.

Reports across the Spanish media had previously claimed on Friday that Philippe Coutinho would not take the No. 7 shirt at Camp Nou because it was being reserved for Griezmann.

Once he had chose to stay in the summer, the France global signed a new deal that changed his release clause to £178 million in order to just make sure he wouldn't leave.

Ronaldinho bids farewell to the football fields
Ronaldinho enjoyed that honour in November 2005, turning in a mesmeric display as Barca tore Madrid apart in an emphatic 3-0 win. He began his playing career with playing for Gremio in his home country, before moving to Paris Saint-Germain in 2001.

Atletico Madrid have reported Barcelona to Federation Internationale de Football Association for an illegal transfer approach, last December.

Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann is all set to move to Barcelona at the end of the season, if reports are to be believed.

"If that's what [Mundo Deportivo] said, it's possible", Amor told Movistar+. I think these are things that happen in the game; sometimes they are lucky and sometimes unlucky. There's a good understanding, maybe there have been talks. "It's something which is done".

Griezmann, 26, has made 16 La Liga appearances this term, scoring five goals for Atletico.

Manchester United also tried to take the playmaker to Old Trafford last summer, only for Griezmann to opt to remain in Madrid.
