"This was last October, a meeting, nothing more".

"But it's not the moment to talk about these matters".

Griezmann was initially linked with Barca previous year as a possible replacement for Neymar, who joined Paris Saint-Germain for a world-record fee of €222 million.

Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo reported that Barca were considering sending him out on loan for a season, but Bartomeu told RAC1: "Right now, that's not on the table".

No club has managed to finish La Liga unbeaten in the modern era, with Athletic Bilbao (1929/30) and Real Madrid (1931/32) the only teams to go a season without losing though both only played 18 games.




'We are very happy with (coach Ernesto Valverde's) work and that of the players, ' Bartomeu added. "Dembele is one for the future and we expect a lot from him in the next few seasons".

Manchester United were chasing the forward last summer, but eventually switched targets and signed Romelu Lukaku after Griezmann remained loyal to Atletico.

Griezmann eventually opted to remain at Atletico a year ago following a transfer ban, ending Manchester United's long pursuit of him at that particular time.

"We have a relationship with his agent as we do with other agents", he said. "There's no need to create further speculation". "He likes the way we are, our habits and little ways and he loves eating a good slap-up roast, and also Uruguyan music - he even drinks more mate that I do!"

"But it's not the time to speak about these things. You can not talk about players who play at other clubs".
