Antoine Griezmann has caused the rumour mill to go into overdrive by announcing via social media that he will not be at Atletico Madrid beyond this summer. Barcelona are heavily linked with him and Valverde also conceded that the club is in talks with the Frenchman.

However, Lionel Messi does not want Barcelona to rest on their laurels and want to instead see what kind of a shot they got at signing Pep Guardiola's flying winger Leroy Sane. Real Madrid are also interested in signing the German international who has recently been forced to warm the bench more than he would have liked.

The emergence of Bernardo Silva has caused a real problem for Sane whose contract runs out in 2021. The report claims that the German has no intention of extending his contract and that Messi has asked for the attacking trident to be completed with a world-class player.

With his skillset and the temperament that he has shown at such a young age, Leroy Sane definitely fits the bill.
