Antoine Griezmann admits that neither he nor Lionel Messi are the most effusive of personalities, but he is happy with his relationship with the Barcelona captain.
Griezmann finally signed for Barcelona over the summer just one year after publicly snubbing the Catalans in favour of staying at Atletico Madrid.
He has had a baptism of fire at Camp Nou, as injuries to the likes of Messi, Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele left the France international to shoulder the burden up front alongside young stars Ansu Fati and Carles Perez.
But despite having shared few minutes on the pitch with Messi, whom it was reported would have preferred the Blaugrana to sign Neymar, Griezmann believes the pair have got off on the right foot.
"He is not someone who talks a lot and neither am I so conversation is tough for us, I have treated him to a mate, it is a step in the right direction," he told reporters on Tuesday ahead of Barca's Champions League clash against Inter.
"He has been injured and it is hard to strike up a connection on the pitch and in training and to improve it in that context, but we are good people and I am here to help any member of the team."
