Antoine Griezmann, who is a Barcelona player, is currently in the covet of Manchester United in the transfer market next season. The French national team striker could be filling in the number 7 player on the team that was used by Alexis Sanchez.
The Red Devils have long wanted to have a player who has defended Atletico Madrid in 2017. However, all the efforts made did not produce great opportunities when Atletico, the Griezmann club were hit by a transfer ban and the player continued his career in Spain.
Griezmann joined Barcelona last summer after the release clause of 120 million euros was opened by Atletico Madrid, but his performance at the Catalan club has not been entirely successful and showed an impressive performance.
This week, the Barca club are said to be making changes to their team in the coming season but must release several first team players to increase revenue, where Griezmann is one of the players to be released.
The news said if the Spanish club will release it with offers of up to 100 million euros for the French players, so they can make purchases on other players in the coming season. Barcelona is also currently linked with the purchase of Paris Saint-Germain player Neymar and Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez.
On the other hand, one of United’s legends, Rio Ferdinand, hopes that Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane and Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho will become the next new troops at MU.
In recent months, Manchester United has been linked to the world footballers in recent months, but Ferdinand is not sure if this can be realized in the near future.
Meanwhile, the Paris Saint Germain will prepare to give Barcelona a chance if they want to get Neymar on the market next season. However, there is a condition that in addition to the value they offer, they also have to exchange it with Antoine Griezmann
PSG is said to not only allow Neymar to move to Camp Nou again by bartering Antoine Griezmann in a contract agreement between the two world football clubs. Because the Ligue 1 championship club does not want to lose players on the front lines again without a guarantee in the next season.
Hope PSG can be realized. The reason is that the Barcelona did include Antoine Griezmann’s name on the list of players that they will release because of their appearance which is considered not good. That makes the player from France ready to be exchanged with Neymar.
However, PSG must compete with other Griezmann enthusiasts namely Manchester United. MU became a strong rival of the French club to get the 29-year-old player in the upcoming exchange after Romelu Lukaku moved the club.
Previously, the Red Devils had approached the former Atletico Madrid’s best striker. MU had wanted to buy it in 2017. However, the transaction did not take place because Los Rojiblancos was at that time bound by a transfer ban.
Griezmann also does not want to leave Spain, and prefers to move to the world football club, namely Barca in 2019 and with a value of around 120 million euros. However, his appearance and the adjustment process with the Lionel Messi team did not go well. During his debut, the 29-year-old bomber could only record 14 goals in a total of 37 matches.
With the sale of these Barcelona players, the management team can receive a large financial addition. However, they will release this player for around 100 million euros.
