Manchester City cannot afford Griezmann, Guardiola says


Pep Guardiola, Manchester City's boss, says his party will not attempt to hijack Barcelona & # 39; s pursuit of Atletico Madrid Antoine Griezmann.

The Frenchman told Madrid that he will leave in the summer, but did not mention the club to which he will join. Spanish giants Barcelona are, however, tipped off about the possible destination for the World Cup winner. Reports came forward on Friday that City was in the running for the 28-year-old, but Guardiola said City couldn't afford a move for the future.

"People of Barcelona, ​​don't worry guys, we're not going to buy Griezmann, we can't afford it," said the manager of the city.

"The people in Barcelona don't have to worry, we are not interested," he added.

As reported by Sky Sports, Barca will have to pay a release clause of £ 108 million to land the forward.
