Rumors about the possible departure of Antoine Griezmann of the FC Barcelona in this transfer market they are increasing. Atlético de Madrid would be the main interested in having the French for the next season and it is speculated that there could be a “barter” by Saúl. From France they also highlight the possibility of the exchange of both players, at the request of ‘Cholo’ Simeone.
As explained by ‘L’Equipe’ on its cover, “The mattress fans are torn between resentment and falling in love, while forward Antoine Griezmann I could return to Atlético de Madrid, two years after a painful march “. Likewise, the medium makes it clear that the player will decide his future.
The French newspaper sees the ‘Little Prince’ once again in the Metropolitan Wanda, citing the entourage of the native Macón. “Antoine is not willing to accept any exit conditions, simply because Barça is in a difficult situation”.
