Barcelona president denies Antoine Griezmann exit report

Barcelona president Joan Laporta has denied reports that Antoine Griezmann is on the verge of leaving the club.

The Catalan giants are desperate to sell players this summer as they cannot yet register Lionel Messi’s new contract nor new signings registrations due to them operating above their wage budget.

Griezmann – one of the highest earners at the Camp Nou – is thought to be one of those most likely to leave due to his high salary and interest from elsewhere, notably his former club Atletico Madrid.
