Griezmann 'In Limbo' As Barcelona Haven't Contacted Atletico

Griezmann 'In Limbo' As Barcelona Haven't Contacted Atletico”

Antoine Griezmann announced his departure once the season concluded.

Meanwhile, Atletico president Enrique Cerezo insists he has no clue about Griezmann's next destination.

However, journalist Duncan Castles disagreed on the podcast, saying: "I think that's the issue, it would cost a lot of money".

"I can only say that it will not be Miami", said the player, probably making reference to David Beckham's new Inter Miami franchise.

Asked whether Barca have initiated discussions, Cerezo replied: "No one from Barca has contacted me".

With so much speculation surrounding the Atletico man, Umtiti was asked about his countryman's future while on global duty. Now, however, he has said that he is clear about where he will he playing.

And while Griezmann, who took part for France on Saturday as they lost in shocking fashion to Turkey, falling 2-0 without registering a shot on goal for the first time in a decade, he did rule out one team he has been linked to.

Rashford was injured in England's 3-1 loss to the Netherlands in the Uefa Nations League semi-final on Thursday night after the Man United striker suffered the problem in a challenge that won Gareth Southgate's side a first-half penalty.

However, Umtiti was quick to distance himself from reports that he could be leaving Barca in the near future.

"I can only say that it will not be Miami", he said.

"But I prefer Neymar for the reasons I pointed out above".

Next up for Griezmann, Umtiti and their French team-mates, is the slightly less daunting task of beating Andorra on Tuesday.
