Not once have we negotiated for Griezmann, nor do we have any intention to do so. "Our relationship with Atletico is very good, and we understand football in the same way".

The newly crowned Spanish champions are expected to complete a deal for Antoine Griezmann this summer by activating the player's release clause with Atletico Madrid.

Barcelona are reported to be ready to sign Antoine Griezmann by triggering his release clause.

Atletico will face Marseille in the Europa League final next Wednesday before ending their campaign against Eibar that weekend.

Atletico are far from happy they are losing one of their stars, and their CEO Miguel Gil Marin admits they are "fed up" with Barcelona's chase of Greizmann.

"With [Atletico president Enrique] Cerezo I've spoken about many things, but not about this", he said. Barcelona boss Bartomeu in an interview said: "I don't want to talk about players at other clubs".

Cadena Cope claimed on Tuesday that Barca have already told Atletico of their plans to pay the €100 million fee which would allow them to bring the France forward to Camp Nou.

During his meeting with Xi, Kim said the Korean Peninsula's denuclearisation was Pyongyang's "clear and consistent position". Abe said he is "looking forward to visiting China (again) at an appropriate time" following a request from Li.

Gil Marin hinted he believes Barca tried to unsettle Griezmann to derail Atleti's LaLiga title bid.

He said Atletico would be demanding compensation from Barcelnoa should "the player exercised his right to nullify his contract due to their pressure throughout the season".

"I think we have to respect what we have here and also our opponents".

"A few months ago, I personally expressed to Barcelona's president that our player isn't for sale nor are we going to sell him", the statement added.

Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo admits his club is "fighting" to reduce its debt and warned supporters about potential player sales.

The 27-year-old has always been linked with a move to the Liga champions and is expected to clarify his future prior to the World Cup.

Griezmann has been regarded as one of the modern great with believable dribbling and finishing skills and he has been the key in Atletico Madrid flight in the recent years. "You can not talk about players who play at other clubs".
