Barcelona have reportedly decided against making a fresh approach to sign Antoine Griezmann, who has been fancied to leave Atletico Madrid at the end of the season.

The Catalan giants were interested in acquiring his services during the summer of 2018 but a deal failed to materialise after the forward made the surprise U-turn to remain with the Atleti and sign a new long-term deal.

The Frenchman has since endured a frustrating campaign with the Madrid outfit, who have failed to compete for silverware and this has recently linked the marksman with a probable move away from the Spanish capital.

According to Marca, Ernesto Valverde's side are aware of the Frenchman's willingness to pursue a fresh challenge but they are unlikely to make a renewed attempt to sign him in the summer.

Griezmann, who has netted 18 times for Atleti this season, has also been linked with a potential move to Manchester United. The Frenchman previously declined to join the Red Devils two years ago.
