Barcelona 'not going to close the door' on Antoine Griezmann move - Valverde

Luis Suarez

But the speculation has not gone away and rumours linking Griezmann with a €100 million move to Barca have increased during the global break.

He then continued on Griezmann: "He is a great player and every time players are linked with Barcelona, they are great players".

Griezmann appeared to flirt with Paris Saint Germain on global duty last week, while Ronaldo has only one league goal this season and his future at Real Madrid is becoming increasingly unclear, especially after losing dressing room allies, Pepe, Fabio Coentrao and James Rodriguez over the summer. Of course, the club, like all clubs, is open to doing business in the January window, even though we're happy with what we already have.

Defender Thomas Vermaelen, who was also pictured in training, could make his first league appearance of the season with Javier Mascherano expected to be out of action for a month with a hamstring injury.

Suarez returned to top form with a vital brace against Leganes

He said: 'Above all as a coach you are alert to these type of games. We'll see who plays but we have confidence in Pique, Umtiti and, of course, in Vermaelen.

Valverde also confirmed that Luis Suarez is in good shape for the weekend after the striker sat out the global break in order to focus on recovering from a long-standing knee problem.

Saturday sees a potentially decisive day in the Spanish Liga Santander as FC Barcelona travel to play Leganes, while Atletico Madrid entertain Real Madrid in the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.

However, Arda Turan, Rafinha, Sergi Roberto, Andre Gomes and Ousmane Dembele remain on the treatment table for the Catalans, who would provisionally move 11 points clear of their Madrid rivals with a win. Previous year at these type of grounds they lost points'.
