Antoine Griezmann provides an update on his future

Speculation over 's next destination is still swirling.

After announcing last month that the French star will depart Atletico Madrid for , the contract negotiations with Nou Camp appear to be stalled.

The 28-year-old has a €100 million (£88 million) buyout clause.

“Let's see. Everything in its time,” said the forward after notching a goal and an assist in yesterday's international friendly against Bolivia.

While coach Ernesto Valverde is keen on Griezmann's move, Lionel is less reluctant. The Barca captain would prefer former teammate over Griezmann due to concerns over the Frenchman's attitude.

Griezmann signed a five-year contract extension with Atletico last year, but a lack of trophies compelled the player to search elsewhere. Barca, too, could need some reassured firepower to ensure a run at another La Liga title and a Champions League trophy.

Time will tell if the Catalan giants and the winner can nail down an agreement. Manchester United will be watching closely.
