Barcelona's new club-record signing Philippe Coutinho will not be wearing the No 7 shirt as the La Liga giants have preassigned it to transfer target Antoine Griezmann.

"FC Barcelona denies the information appeared in the last hours in different media referring to the player from Atletico Madrid Antoine Griezmann and alleged links to our club", the statement said.

Reports in Spain suggested the Catalan club were close to agreeing a deal for the France worldwide which would see him join in the summer.

Once he had made a decision to stay in the summer, the France worldwide signed a new deal that changed his release clause to £178 million in order to just make sure he wouldn't leave.

"Barcelona express their unease at the reports and reiterate our respect towards the institution of Atletico Madrid".

Barcelona have issued a statement denying that the club were interested in signing Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann. "Maybe there's been a meeting and things have advanced, although I don't know". In the case of Griezmann, there are a lot of players we could be talking with, initiating some kind of relationship with if there's an opportunity.

He lay down in a heap after being clattered by Girona keeper Bono as he headed on for Griezmann, but it was the stopper who came off worse and had to be substituted at halftime.

Griezmann, who has a release clause of £889million in his contract, has been strongly linked to both Barcelona and Manchester United.

The France global, a long-term Manchester United target, is expected to leave the Spanish capital in the summer despite having only signed an improved contract little over six months ago.
