Barcelona have been linked with Griezmann for some time now with the latest reports all claiming a deal for the Frenchman is close.
And perhaps unsurprisingly Messi was asked for his opinion on Griezmann after Barcelona’s final match of the season.
“It’s obvious that I like him. He’s one of the best players in the world right now. I don’t know if there’s any real interest, but we’re delighted if the best players come and Griezmann is one of the best.”
Griezmann signed off for Atletico in their 2-2 draw with Eibar on Sunday. He came on as a sub in the second half and AS reported some fans whistled him when he appeared.
