Antoine Griezmann has played down speculation linking him with a Barcelona exit.

The French star, who joined the Catalan club in a big-money move from Atletico Madrid last summer, has struggled to make a major impact at the Nou Camp.

It has led to reports from the Daily Mail that Manchester UnitedLiverpool and Arsenal are all on red-alert and monitoring his situation with a view to a move if he becomes available during Barcelona’s clear-out.

But Griezmann insists his future lies at Barcelona and says he is full of confidence in both the club and new manager Ronald Koeman despite a turbulent few months.

Asked in an interview by M6 if his future lies at the Nou Camp, he replied (via Marca ): “Yes.

“I don’t know why people are making up other destinations.

“I’m happy at Barcelona and I know I have the confidence of the club and of the coach.

“So, I’m good.

“Last season was a tough season for everyone and now we’re ready to start again.”

Griezmann has been on international duty with France but his Barcelona team-mates are back in training under Koeman.

Lionel Messi and Philippe Coutinho were amongst those reintroduced to group training on Wednesday.

Griezmann recently revealed they had been kept in the dark over Messi’s future but the superstar is now set to stay at the club.

“We are trying to stay updated with the issue, but it is between him and the club,” Griezmann told M6 last week.

“We only hope that he stays. I am trying to stay focused on the national team and prepare well for the next two games.

“We have heard a little of everything but we don’t know anything else about all this affair.”
