Barcelona and Griezmann from the date of the meeting are not happy. Therefore, breaking up is something to be considered at the present time.
Barcelona “lower” Griezmann 100 million euros: MU in the match PSG – Chelsea
In the summer of 2019, Barcelona should be in love with Antoine Griezmann with a € 120 million blockbuster deal. On the first day of arriving at the Nou Camp, the “prince” of France is expected to ease Neymar’s nostalgia.
However, things were not as expected, Griezmann proved less adaptable to “Blaugrana”, and said that “difficult to talk” with the number one star, Lionel Messi. Up to now, Griezmann has “only” 14 goals and 4 assists after 37 matches in all competitions.
According to Sports (Spain), Barcelona’s leadership has approved the sale plan of Griezmann in the summer of 2020. This means that the French striker will only have one year to stick with the Nou Camp team.
The source said that Barcelona is willing to suffer a loss of 120 million euros to 100 million euros for any team that submitted an offer early. Barcelona‘s current wage fund is very high, they are still struggling in the economic period affected by the worldwide pandemic.
So in addition to cutting wages, selling Griezmann will be a must. In addition, the club of Catalunya has to use the money from this deal to bring in other important contracts including Neymar (PSG) or Lautaro Martinez (Inter Milan).
In the opposite direction, according to the Daily Mail, Griezmann is receiving great attention from the top 3 European teams including PSG, MU and Chelsea.
In the previous period, MU is a team pursuing closely the French striker. There have even been reports that the “Red Devils” and Griezmann reached an oral agreement about the French star joining Old Trafford in the summer of 2017.
However, because Atletico was banned by FIFA at that time, MU was forced to divert to other goals. But if now chosen again, the “Red Devils” and Griezmann will most likely still find each other. Because the former Atletico player once confessed his love of MU from a young age and repeatedly told him that he would go to Old Trafford on television.
If nods to “Theater of Dreams”, Griezmann promises to wear the No.7 shirt at United (currently vacated when Alexis Sanchez to Inter), inheriting legends like Eric Cantona, David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo.
MU strengthened the force: Revealing “scanner” for dirt-cheap price Matic
After the winter transfer, MU‘s form has improved when there have been 11 unbeaten matches in the arenas, they reached the FA Cup quarter-finals and reached the top 4 Premier League before the football activities were delayed because of the epidemic. This form has a significant contribution of Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo, two players were brought in in January.
The positive influence of the two new recruits plus the stability shown by the players bought in the summer of 2019 has made coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer win the trust of the MU leadership in the transfer stage. The club has been bad at recruiting for many seasons but the Maguire, Wan-Bissaka, Fernandes, Ighalo all show that Solskjaer doesn’t look bad.
The Mirror said Solskjaer will be given additional funding for the transfer in the summer of 2020 and he has already outlined additional positions. One of those positions is a defensive midfielder, Nemanja Matic is 31 years old and is expected to leave the club after the end of the contract so Matic’s position will be MU “headhunted”.
The source revealed that the goal Solskjaer is targeting is Monchengladbach’s midfielder, Denis Zakaria. Joined the German club in 2017, the Swiss player is 23 years old and has played 96 matches at Gladbach, scoring 8 goals & 6 assists. Zakaria has the main task of protecting the defense and he has a very fast speed that few players can overcome, but also knows how to attack when he has the ability to hold the ball and use the power to break through the middle.
Zakaria is still at the moment of many big clubs and The Mirror says MU can buy him for only about 20 million pounds, quite a price for a bright young player playing in a top 5 league in Europe.
But that doesn’t mean big clubs that aren’t interested in Zakaria, Atletico Madrid, Liverpool and Dortmund all send followers, but don’t consider Zakaria a priority target now.One obstacle for MU is that it is likely that Gladbach will refuse to sell Zakaria to MU if they win tickets to the Champions League because they are currently ranked 4th in the Bundesliga.
Sports director Max Eberl has publicly told the media that Zakaria will stay with the club if they qualify for the Champions League next season. https://thenewssports.net/
