Lionel Messi And Antoine Griezmann Get Into Training Ground Bust-Up

By Mike Parrott

Barcelona duo Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann have supposedly had a training ground bust-up that had to be broken up by manager Quique Setien with other players also intervening.

Griezmann has struggled in his first season at the club, after a long and drawn-out transfer saga which included him nearly joining Manchester United the summer prior. The £108 million transfer still has questions surrounding it with the Frenchman only scoring 14 goals in 40 games.

However, the latest story surrounding the 29-year-old won't be good news for Barcelona fans.

Spanish website Diario Gol has reported that Griezmann's bust-up with Lionel Messi "escalated to levels that cannot go unnoticed". It added that manager Setien "and some colleagues had to intervene in a fight in training". In the game against Leganes, Messi reportedly did not pass to his teammate once.

With Barcelona trying everything they can to bring in either one or both of Lautaro Martinez of Inter Milan, and Neyamr of Paris Saint-Germain, Griezmann might see his career at Barcelona span only one season.

Griezmann has been linked to numerous swap deals with him supposedly returning back to France in a part-exchange deal with Neymar. However, the Frenchman is still of interest to other clubs across Europe.

Messi is set to sign a new contract with Barcelona after agreeing the terms of the wages recently. The Argentine is currently on over £1 million a week.
