Deschamps: No Barcelona distraction for Griezmann

Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann will not be distracted by speculation linking him with a move to Barcelona, according to French national team boss Didier Deschamps.

Griezmann, who played in every game of France's World Cup win in 2018, is away on international duty this week as Les Bleus face Moldova and Iceland in EURO 2020 qualifying action.

He was linked with a move to the Nou Camp prior to the tournament in Russia, before eventually deciding to stay in Madrid, however fresh speculation has emerged this week that Barcelona may launch a second bid this summer – however Deschamps remains unfazed.

"I have spoken with him and he is relaxedd. There is no problem with Antoine.

"If he is asked (about a move to Barcelona) then he may have to have a think.

"However he had this speculation last summer and it did not affect him and he went on to win the World Cup."
