Argentina-Israel friendly cancelled due to threat to Messi

Lionel Messi has admitted that Antoine Griezmann is a great player whom he would form a good understanding with amidst Barcelona's continued links with the Frenchman.

Griezmann has still not confirmed whether or not he's planning to stay with Atletico Madrid as both the Blaugrana and Manchester United have been linked with summer moves.

"He's a great player and we would understand each other.

"He's going through an exceptional moment in his career. It's not yet one hundred percent, but the more quality we have, the better.

"That will depend on the coach. We want to be the best team in the world, and for that we have to look at the best." Messi told Mundo Deportivo.
