Antoine Griezmann indicated that the first team in Barcelona wants Lionel Messi to stay at Camp Nou.
Having expressed a desire to terminate his connection with the Catalan giants, the superstar is being massively linked with a summer transfer to Manchester City.
Despite the fact that his opinion was divided behind the scenes, Griezmann acknowledged that he and his teammates were hoping that the 33-year-old would have a change of heart in the coming days.
He said, brings Sportsmole: “We just hope he stays there. I’m trying to stay focused on the national team and prepare well for the next two games.”
“We’ve heard a little of it all, but we don’t know anything else about this whole affair.”
However, club officials have remained on their point and won’t sell Messi for anything less than a £630 m release clause.
