Griezmann chooses team

According to 'Sport', the Frenchman has communicated to Barcelona that he will only go to the mattress team, despite the interest shown by several European clubs.


Neither Manchester City nor Tottenham. The only possible destination for Antoine Griezmann, should he finally abandon the Blaugrana discipline in this summer transfer market, is Atlético de Madrid. This has been communicated by the French striker to the culé team, as reported by the Sport newspaper. Barça, through its president Joan Laporta and sports director Mateu Alemany, had already communicated that it is open to hear offers for Griezmann. The problem for the Catalans, who need to free up a salary mass to make room for new incorporations, is that the French footballer will only hear one offer: that of Atleti.

The negotiations between the Catalans and the rojiblancos are expected to be as long as they are complicated. After the failed barter attempt between Saúl Ñíguez and Antoine Griezmann, whose economic conditions would have been another problem for the Catalan team, the Wanda Metropolitano team is the one who once again has the upper hand. And, as this medium has also communicated, Griezmann would only be willing to lower his salary to put himself under the command of 'Cholo' Simeone.

Although the statements of Enrique Cerezo, president of Atlético de Madrid, stating that according to him "there is no negotiation. For Miguel Ángel (Gil) I imagine that he would not have told me either. Griezmann is from Barcelona", seem to go along the same lines Contrary to the wishes of the French footballer, the Argentine coach of the colchoneros has already admitted that he would be delighted to have Griezmann at his disposal again.

According to Sport, Barça wanted to negotiate with one of the European clubs interested in Griezmann, but the player's intentions have ended up dissuading them. While Manchester City has focused on the incorporations of Harry Kane and Jack Grealish, the chances of Tottenham signing Griezmann, who in the last hours became interested in his situation, are minimal. The Spurs, knowing that the mattresses are on pole, have not made any formal offer for the French striker.
