According to Toni Juanmarti of SPORT's Siempre Positivo Podcast, ex-Barcelona forward Antoine Griezmann and Xavi have communicated and expressed their regret at not being able to work together.

According to the journalist, the new Barcelona manager believes that the Frenchman, who left the club for Atletico Madrid on a loan agreement with an option to buy, would have been a great No. 9 in his system because of his quick movements.

However, given the terms of Griezmann's departure to Atletico Madrid on the summer transfer deadline day, any likelihood of the pair working together appears to be nil. The 30-year-old has five goals in 16 games since returning to Atleti.
