Antoine Griezmann says Barcelona’s team “is like a cheat code in a video game” due to the number of top stars in the squad.

The Spanish champions have added Griezmann and Frenkie de Jong to a club that already boasts top names such as Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Sergio Busquets and Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

Griezmann is clearly impressed with his new team-mates.

“Barcelona are building a team like a cheat code in a video game: Luis Suarez, Messi, Dembele, Frenkie de Jong,” he said.

”We have a good team, great players and then it’s the boss that has to decide who plays.

“We’ll be ready to enjoy ourselves and make the fans and ourselves happy at all times.”

Barcelona’s new signings mean there will be expectations on the club to win it all next season.

The team came close to another treble last time out before losses to Liverpool and Valencia ensured a highly promising campaign ended in disappointment.
