Pique to miss Barcelona's Leganes trip over personal matter

Suárez celebrates his second goal in Cuellar's face

Valverde was also asked about midfielder Denis Suarez and if he will remain at the club beyond the next transfer window.

But the speculation has not gone away and rumours linking Griezmann with a €100 million move to Barca have increased during the worldwide break.

He then continued on Griezmann: "He is a great player and every time players are linked with Barcelona, they are great players".

"But I'm happy with the ones I have and, in the future, we'll see".

"The club is open to all kinds of possibilities".

However, two simple Suarez finishes from close range either side of half-time and Paulinho's late tap-in glossed over another under-par performance from Ernesto Valverde's men, who were again thankful to a fine display from goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

"We're going to suffer a lot because we're playing against the best", boss Asier Garitano said at a Press conference.

Thomas Vermaelen could feature for Barcelona with Javier Macherano out for a month through injury.

"But that's why we have a deep squad".

Gerard Pique will miss Barcelona's trip to Leganes over a "personal matter", the LaLiga leaders have confirmed.

Valverde also confirmed that Luis Suarez is in good shape for the weekend after the striker sat out the global break in order to focus on recovering from a long-standing knee problem.

Barca now lead second-placed Valencia by seven points ahead of their trip to Mestalla next weekend, with both Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid 11 points adrift before they face off in the Madrid derby later on Saturday (1945 GMT). Like Girona, they're a solid team that believe in what they do and defend well.

He said: 'Above all as a coach you are alert to these type of games. "Maybe it's not as glamorous as others, but we know the problems we have had at Girona, Alaves".
