There has been a discussion between Barca and Atletico Madrid regarding the stunning swap of Antoine Griezmann. At present this is the talk of the town in Spain. This is because the Spanish club is high on their wage bill, and nearly it is overflowing. Hence it would be great if they could make a deal with Griezman. Also, it would be great if the star footballer makes his return to his former club.
Uneasy journey of Griezmann
The entire journey of Griezmann in Barcelona has not been that easy. Despite his good performance, he may feel like the club has no faith in him. However, this is also a fact that Barcelona is facing financial issues. They don’t have the luxury to keep two of the most costly footballers in the world including him and Lionel Messi.
The French footballer wants to return to Atletico Madrid
As a consequence of this journey of Griezmann in Barca, various reports suggest that the French man wants to make his return at Atletico Madrid, and does not wish to start the training campaign with Barcelona. Apart from Atletico Madrid, Barca hasn’t received any proposals from Griezmann or any other clubs yet.
Regarding Grizzy’s Swap deal
There will be more clarity on Griezmann’s raw swap deal when Le Petit Prince will return to Barcelona. Currently, he is on a vacation following the EUROs and is expected to return on July 20th. According to some sources, Saul has also shown his excitement regarding his anticipated move to Catalonia.
With getting rid of the mammoth wage of Griezmann, Barcelona will go a bit closer to falling in line with FFP and La Liga’s salary rules. With the execution of this, Barca will go one step further regarding the completion of Lionel Messi’s official renewal, which is progressing smoothly at present.
