"Griezmann's return to Atlético? Anything is possible ..."

President Enrique Cerezo does not close the doors on the return of the French forward despite the complexity of the negotiations with Barcelona.


Enrique Cerezo has always kept the doors open to a return of Antoine Griezmann to Atlético. The president of the rojiblanco team is aware of the level shown by the French forward in his five seasons at the club before leaving for Barcelona and now, when negotiations are open, he has once again stated that, for his part, he would be welcome.

Atletico and Barcelona have been negotiating a barter for days that would end with Griezmann back at the rojiblanco club and with Saúl as blaugrana. Despite the complexity of the operation, Cerezo does not give up the possibility that it will be carried out. "In the world of football, anything can happen," explained Cerezo at the presentation of the 8th edition of the Platinum Awards. Despite the fact that it seems that the barter has slowed down in recent days, Atlético continues to try to find reinforcement in attack and Saúl is their asset after having shown his interest in leaving.

For its part, Barcelona need to release footballers from its squad to be able to register Messi again after the end of his contract. And Griezmann is one of the highest salaries. The Blaugrana team have incorporated Kun Agüero and Memphis Depay in attack and had counted on adding Wijnaldum to their midfield, but the Dutchman ended up signing for PSG, so he needs a medium arriving. An exchange that seems very difficult, but as Cerezo indicates, it is still possible.
