Griezmann former agent has revealed He wanted to leave Barcelona but Koeman reassured him

Griezmann felt that he wasn't part of the club's future, his former agent Olhats has revealed.

The Frenchman was seriously considering leaving Barcelona.

However, the new coach has told him that he'll be an important piece in the squad next season.

"Before the disaster vs Bayern Munich, Antoine Griezmann wanted one thing: to leave.

He felt like he was no longer part of the plan, that things couldn’t continue like that," the forward's former agent Eric Olhats has told RMC Sport. (h/t Get French Football News)

"He was seriously looking at it (leaving). Then, there was what we know happened and a conversation with Ronald Koeman reassured him, that he was part of his plans, that he considered him as an important player for the future."

The 29-year-old joined from Atletico Madrid only last summer for €120m. In his debut season at Barcelona, Griezmann recorded 15 goals and four assists in 48 matches. Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
