Meanwhile, Barca maestro Lionel Messi has heaped praise on the Frenchman in a couple of interviews lately, rating him among the world’s top players.

The Argentina international admitted that in order to get back to winning ways in the Champions League, Barcelona need to have the best players and Griezmann is one of them.

“I don’t know if he’s the priority. It depends on the technical secretary and coach. I’m just saying that to win the Champions League you need to have the best. And he is very good!”

RAPHAEL VARANE

Manchester United have expressed an interest in the Real Madrid star, the Daily Mail reports. The French international has established himself as one of the world’s best centre-backs during his time at the Bernabeu. And the 25-year-old is on United’s transfer wishlist as they consider to bolster their options in defence ahead of next season. Jose Mourinho has convinced the club to sign Varane as he has first-hand experience of his talents having signed him from Lens during his time as Real Madrid manager in 2011.

MOUSA DEMBELE

Juventus are tracking the star midfielder as he approaches the final year of his contract at Tottenham, Calciomercato claims. The Belgian international turns 31 in July and has also been linked with Napoli and Roma. While the Nerazzurri made an initial offer for around €10m (Dh49.2m) recently, it is believed Juventus will go far closer to the €30m (Dh129.7m) asking price for the former Fulham man. Regardless of Dembele’s future, Mauricio Pochettino’s side are keen to strengthen their midfield ahead of next season.

ANDRE VILLAS-BOAS

Real Madrid are considering the former Chelsea boss as a replacement for Zinedine Zidane following his surprise exit after winning his third Champions League title with the club, RMC reports.

The Portuguese has experience in charge of the likes of Tottenham, Porto and the Blues and would represent a cheap option for Los Blancos, who would only have to pay his salary and no release fee.

Borussia Dortmund have also been linked with the 40-year-old, who is a free agent after leaving his role at Shanghai SIPG last November.

RAFINHA

Tottenham have emerged as key contenders to sign the Barcelona wantaway, according to Sport.

The Brazilian spent last season on loan at Inter and the Serie A side had the option to sign him permanently this summer.

However, the Milan-based club are unable to pay the £30.8m (Dh152m) needed to land the Sao Paulo man.

And, according to the Spanish publication, Spurs are set to table a bid to secure his services as they look to bolster their line-up ahead of next season.
