Lionel Messi: 'Barcelona need Antoine Griezmann for Champions League'

Most of the Catalan's squad have commented on rumours that the star could move to the Nou Camp. Denmark, too, won't be boring - we have to be prepared.

Meanwhile, Griezmann's future at Atletico is uncertain, although the forward is set to announce whether he is staying at the La Liga club in the coming days , amid Barcelona's interest.

Read the full story here.

Griezmann signed a one-year contract extension with Atletico last summer that runs until 2022.

Griezmann is now valued at £200m, but will see his Atleti release clause half in price at the start of next month.

Man arrested after hostage incident in Paris: minister
The hostage-taker also claimed he had an accomplice outside the building with a bomb, according to Lefebvre. Shocking photos show police decked out in body armour with a local reporter warning of "an armed man".

But he finally appears to have secured his next challenge, with Atletico giving every indication they want to close the gap on LaLiga champions Barcelona next season by signing a highly rated attacker.

"We are very pleased to welcome Gerard back to Vicarage Road and thank FC Barcelona for their part in concluding this deal", Watford chairman Scott Duxbury told the club's website.

"I know there's a lot of expectation, I know many were waiting for it, but today is not the day (to speak about my future)".

Previously, the Frenchman had stated that he wanted things to be resolved before the World Cup, in order to fully concentrate on the tournament with his country.

Messi is still in search of his first World Cup triumph, and where Argentina finish this summer may determine his future with the national team.
