But it's safe to say that our new favourite involves Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann.

Argentina superstar Lionel Messi has admitted that Frenchman Antoine Griezmann will be of great advantage for Barcelona if the club signs him this summer.

Griezmann may yet be able to replicate the achievement of the France 98 side and bring the story full circle, fulfilling his childhood dreams.

However, at a press conference in Russian Federation on Tuesday, the 27-year-old repeatedly laughed off questions regarding a potential move before claiming he has made up his mind where he will be playing next season.

Griezmann is contracted at Atletico - the club he joined in 2014 - until 2022, but Barcelona are reportedly prepared to trigger his €100million release clause. And Griezmann is one of them.

Deulofeu scored once in seven appearances for Watford and had struggled to find his footing with Barcelona during his time at Camp Nou.

"Our ambition to succeed and grow in the Premier League remains as strong as ever". "I know many people were waiting for that but this isn't the right day to do so".

"We understand there won't be easy matches at the World Cup for us", the Atletico Madrid star told French sports daily L'Equipe.

"There's no more pressure on me, I am relaxed, focused on the World Cup".
