French world champion Antoine Griezmann has spent a hot season at the Camp Nou and Barcelona may have to sell him in the summer to cut the losses of his expensive contract last season.
Barcelona refused to sell Antoine Griezmann to Paris Saint Germain
The Spanish press reported that Barcelona had officially rejected the offer of exchanging Antoine Griezmann for Paris Saint Germain’s Neymar. The defending champions of France think that this is a reasonable solution to solve the problem of the strikers of both teams. Griezmann didn’t fit in with Barcelona, while Neymar wanted to leave Paris Saint Germain last summer. If Griezmann is sold, Barcelona will prioritize finding another partner.
Griezmann can be considered a disappointment for the Nou Camp team, when he only had 1 goal in the last 9 matches before the Spanish league took a break. The Frenchman did not even make good use of his time on the pitch with young talent Ansu Fati, while another Barcelona striker Luis Suarez was sidelined. Coach Quique Setien does not know how to use Griezmann effectively.
The eight goals in 25 games is the striker’s disappointing number since he started his career in Spain. Previously, Griezmann had 46 goals in 5 years playing for Real Sociedad and 94 goals in 5 years playing for Atletico Madrid.
Antoine Griezmann got to the top with sweat and tears. He became a household name in Basque and made a name for himself in Atletico Madrid.
Diego Simeone didn’t want to lose him but didn’t get in his way. El Cholo understands that the future of this small striker has left the Spanish capital. And when Barcelona arrived, he did not get in the way of Griezmann.
Playing next to Lionel Messi was a dream come true but it did not come true as Griezmann desired. After a disastrous season in the Blaugrana shirt, Griezmann has been linked with a move away. At the age of 27, there are many CLbBs lining up to ask for his autograph.
He is going to PSG
When the French star is making his way to Camp Nou, Neymar is also linked with his return to Catalan. Messi and Pique also believe in the return of the Brazilian superstar.
And when similar rumors were speeding up, bookmakers immediately opened a bet on the transfer possibilities of both Griezmann and Neymar.
He to PSG with the transfer rate has shortened to place a bet 2.62. While the bookies are offering expensive odds of 1 to 3.25 for the return of Neymar.
PSG was not the only team affiliated with Griezmann, as Manchester United jumped into his signature.
Griezmann has formed a formidable partnership with Paul Pogba at the World Cup in Russia and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to replicate that on a regular basis at Old Trafford. The odds of Griezamnn joining Man United stand at 1 to 7 7.00. That shows that transferability is very low.
Griezmann’s ability to play for Manchester City is even lower (put 1 to 10). But the lowest is to switch to Chelsea (order 1 to 13).
