GRIEZMANN BALL JUGGLING AT HIS ATLETICO PRESNTATION STORY: Barcelona President Josep Maria Bartomeu said on Friday (July 5) his club are aware that Neymar wants to leave Paris St Germain to return to the La Liga champions but the French club are reluctant to sell the Brazilian forward.

"We know that Neymar wants to leave PSG but we also know that PSG don't want him to go, so there is no case for signing him," Bartomeu told a news conference on Friday.

Bartomeu also revealed a meeting between Barca CEO Oscar Grau and Atletico Madrid chief executive Miguel Angel Gil Marin over the signing France forward Antoine Griezmann, who announced in May that he was leaving the Madrid side.

Griezmann's buy-out clause has fallen from 200 million euros ($224.4 million) to 120 million euros, but Bartomeu said his club are trying to reach a deal without paying the clause.

Griezmann turned down a move to Barca last year, revealing he was staying at Atletico in a televised documentary called "The Decision".
