Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has dismissed transfer rumours linking the Premier League champions with a move for Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann this summer.

The Spanish tactician said that Manchester City have no interest in the French international.

Guardiola talked about transfers during his pre-match press conference ahead of the FA Cup final clash with Watford.

Manchester City will face the Hornets at the Wembley Stadium on Saturday evening hoping to win a third major trophy this season.

The Premier League champions can become the first team to win a domestic treble in the top flight of English football by beating Watford in the FA Cup final.

According to Guardiola, Antoine Griezmann is too expensive for Manchester City.

The new development is a big relief for Spanish champions Barcelona who have been heavily linked with the player.

Barcelona are said to be prepared to pay the £108m release clause in his contract with Atletico Madrid.

Premier League giants Manchester United have previously been linked with a move for Antoine Griezmann but the Red Devils will have to miss out on him.

Griezmann has already confirmed that he will leave Atletico Madrid at the end of this season and the Levante game is expected to be his last match for the Spanish capital club.
