The Frenchman is one of several players deemed surplus to requirements by Ronald Koeman, if rumors are to be believed.

Antoine Griezmann insists he’s “enjoying being” at FC Barcelona, essentially pouring cold water on speculations linking him with a move away.

Griezmann has blown hot and cold ever since joining Barcelona from Atletico Madrid two years ago.

It has been reported the 30-year-old, who is supposedly on a staggering €880,000-a-week wages, is one of several players the Catalan club want to offload this summer as they look to reduce their massive wage bill.

The forward has been tipped to retrace his steps to the Wanda Metropolitano, with reports claiming he could join Atletico in a transfer deal that would see Saul Niguez moving the other way.

Griezmann, though, doesn’t seem not interested at all in leaving Camp Nou.

“I am proud and happy to have reached this figure,” he told Barcelona’s official website after hitting the milestone of a century of appearances for the club.

“I hope I get to play another 100 games and carry on giving everything to make history with this club.

“I want to keep helping the team both on and off the pitch, in attack and defence, and enjoying being at Barca.”
