Barcelona's Luis Suarez considers Atletico Madrid's Antoine Griezmann move to the Blaugrana as a done deal.

Before Griezmann suits up for Les Bleus in Russian Federation next month, Atletico will face Marseille in the Europa League Final on May 16 in Lyon.

Speaking on Uruguayan radio station, Radio Rincon, Suarez was asked about possible signings for this season's La Liga champions and responded as if a deal had already been agreed for the French global, reports Xinhua news agency.

In fact, the Uruguayan himself may have accidentally let it slip that his side have agreed to sign Griezmann in the summer, while defending his own place in the starting XI.

"We are very happy with [manager Ernesto Valverde's] work and that of the players", Bartomeu said. "It was a meeting, but nothing more", he told Spanish radio, according to the BBC. "There was no need for any speculation [on the back of it]".

Barcelona are not planning to let Ousmane Dembele leave in the summer and will give him the time he needs to fulfil his potential, president Josep Maria Bartomeu has said. "You can't speak about players that play for other clubs".

But the club have managed to cope well enough without the Brazil No.10, winning La Liga with four games to spare.

Barca's footballers are still unrivalled in La Liga after 34 matches, however they will face Real Madrid in El Clasico at Camp Nou on Sunday. We're analysing the season and what we'll do with the signings and departures.

The France global has scored 27 goals across all competitions this season and Suarez insists he would be welcomed at the Camp Nou.

However, they disappointingly exited the Champions League in the quarterfinals after surrendering a 4-1 first leg lead against Roma to lose their second leg 3-0 on away goals, marking the third straight year they failed to progress to the semifinal stage.
