Arriving at the Catalan club in the summer of 2019 from Atlético Madrid, Antoine Griezmann is far from the level he used to when he played under the colors of the Colchoneros. Very criticized for his performances with the Blaugrana this season, the management of the club would be ready to separate from the French this summer. A possible Griezmann-Neymar exchange is mentioned in the Spanish press this Sunday.
Griezmann on the transfer list
The news arrived this morning on the Iberian side with the daily Sport which made its front page on Griezmann with the title: “Griezmann on the market”.
The media explains that the club would have chosen to sell off the French to be able to have cash for the next summer transfer window. In the current context, the club would seek to replenish its coffers by the sale of the world champion. The club would have set its starting price at 100 million euros. A reasonable price given the current crisis and the quality of the striker of the Blues which arouses the interest of many European clubs like Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal or Paris-Saint-Germain.
Towards a Griezmann-Neymar exchange?
The club in the capital of France could become the next destination for the native of Mâcon.
Indeed, and still according to the Iberian daily Sport, the Catalans would consider including Griezmann in a major transaction with the Ile-de-France club. The journalist Arbet Masnou thus evokes a Griezmann-Neymar exchange which, according to him, would be profitable for the three parties. The Spanish club would recover its attacker whose characteristics better suit the style of play of the club, the PSG would benefit from the services of an excellent striker who still has a lot to offer and the Brazilian would return to the club of his first exploits to which he remains very attached. An operation which, certainly, is not to be dismissed but which however remains dependent on the will of the Parisian club to separate from its Brazilian star and the sum that the Spaniards would be ready to deposit on the negotiating table.
A last option for Griezmann
Even if the departure of the French is indeed mentioned, FC Barcelona could nevertheless keep Griezmann in its workforce. Sport does not rule out the possibility of seeing the Frenchman still in the Catalan tunic next season. If the sale of the latter fails this summer, the club would always be ready to offer Griezmann the opportunity to prove his worth on the field next season.
The world champion is still appreciated by the management of the club with which he is contracted until June 2024.
