Antoine Griezmann has been talking about playing with Lionel Messi at Barcelona and admits it’s something he’s been thinking about pretty much all the time.

The Frenchman swapped Atletico Madrid for Barcelona this summer and will get the chance to play alongside the GOAT for the Spanish champions this season.

Griezmann was asked about Messi, before Saturday’s clash against Vissel Kobe, and is looking forward to linking up with the Barca captain.

“I insist that I’m desperate to finally play alongside him. I want to meet him, get to know him, watch him in training, play alongside him, provide assists... it’ll be really nice,” he said.

“I’ve thought about it when I’m in bed, at training, and watching videos. You make the ‘film’ in your head and I know it’ll go well.”

Messi has been pictured back in Barcelona already, after his holidays following the Copa America, and is expected to return to training with the club next week.
