‘Lionel Messi Has NOT Welcomed Me Yet To Barcelona’- Griezmann


Lionel Messi Has NOT Welcomed Me Yet To Barcelona’- Griezmann , Antoine Griezmann says he is yet to hear from Lionel Messi after joining Barcelona , but has received a message from Luis Suarez to welcome him to Catalunya.

After paying €120 million (£107m/$134m) to activate the release clause in Griezmann’s Atletico Madrid contract , Barca presented the forward as their latest signing on July 14.

The France international said he received a warm welcome from those present on the club’s tour to Japan , where they will play Chelsea and Vissel Kobe in the Rakuten Cup , despite being nutmegged twice in his first training session.

Reports have emerged that Messi wants Barca to re-sign Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain although the Catalans could find it difficult to do so unless they offload players ,

having already spent big on Griezmann.

Suarez and Messi are not present in Asia due to their Copa America commitments for Uruguay and Argentina respectively , but only the former has been in touch with him so far.

“The truth is it started badly because they nutmegged me twice in my first rondo. Luckily I have learned the lesson , Griezmann said at a news conference ahead of Tuesday’s meeting with Chelsea.
Messi has not called me yet , but Suarez did. He congratulated me and welcomed me.
“The group has welcomed me and I am happy to share a dressing room with them. Hopefully I can help in the best way possible.”
