FC Barcelona: the terrible consequences of a non-transfer of Antoine Griezmann

If Barça did not manage to get rid of the tricolor striker this summer, the consequences would be unfortunate to say the least …

Annoying. It is with this term that one could describe the situation of Antoine Griezmann at FC Barcelona. The Frenchman is undesirable in Catalonia, not really because of his performances in the field, but because of his colossal salary which, for once, is not necessarily in line with his performance. The Catalans have been trying to get rid of it for several weeks, without success.

It must be said that in this story, Grizi does not want to let it go. The player does not want to make any concessions in terms of salary, but above all, he does not want to leave for another club that is not Atlético de Madrid. The failed exchange between Blaugranas and Rojiblancos could become topical again, since the Wanda Metropolitano is the only destination that appeals to the French striker. Only, Barça does not want to offer it to Atlético without interesting compensation …

Koeman doesn’t really count on him

In any case, FC Barcelona has every interest in separating from the native of Mâcon. As indicated Sport, with the club’s untenable financial situation, a new season with Griezmann would force other players to lower their salaries significantly. The Frenchman’s registration in La Liga would explode a payroll that the leaders are already looking to lower, and the only way to integrate the 2018 world champion into the team would be for all members of the team to lower their salaries. Or force other departures.

The media adds in addition that in the eyes of Ronald Koeman it is still not essential. Memphis Depay seems to be on the starting line, just like Lionel Messi, it goes without saying. And the last place available, if the Dutchman decided to return to 4-3-3, would go to Ansu Fati or Kun Agüero. A disabling salary for a player who will not have an important role next season, and who in addition should push the rest of the players to lower their salaries or leave. Suffice to say that we understand better why Joan Laporta wants to part with it …
