"We've always said the same. We haven't spoken to him. There's nothing to it. We'll see how the market changes in the next few days and weeks."

As for the squad planning overall, Bartomeu said plans were moving along slowly as each respective person gives their opinion and advice on what needs to be done.

"We have all of June, July and August. We're talking and planning a strategy, also keeping Barça B in mind, as there are certain players who could be promoted to the first team. There will be some new arrivals and some departures."

Bartomeu didn't want to be drawn on the comments by Atletico CEO, Miguel Angel Gil Marin, who claimed Griezmann was heading to the Camp Nou.

Nelson Semedo, however, won't be sold. He's considered a key member of the first team.
