Griezmann Still Getting to Know Messi at Barca



Antoine Griezmann has opened up on his relationship with Lionel Messi at Barcelona, dismissing any rumours of discord between them at the start of his spell in Catalunya.

After five successful years on Atletico Madrid's books, Griezmann completed a £107 million ($138m) move to Barca in June, bringing to an end one of 2019's longest-running transfer sagas.

The World Cup winner was expected to add a dimension to the Blaugrana attack which has been lacking since Neymar joined Paris Saint Germain in 2017, but he has endured a difficult first few months at Camp Nou.

The 28-year-old is eager to get to know his strike partners better, however, and has already been out to dinner with the South American duo to build up a stronger rapport.

"I'm really shy and I'm not very good at talking to people," Griezmann told UEFA.com.

"I'm not the type of person to start conversations. But Leo, Luis and I are getting to know each other and we've already gone for dinner together.

"Our relationship will only improve over time, and it's clear that what happens will only make us feel more comfortable on the pitch."
