Griezmann to Barca? Reports indicate 100m release clause deal in summer

By Soccer Blog | Feb 27, 2018

If reports in Spain are to be believed, Barcelona have agreed a deal with Antoine Griezmann and will sign the French striker in the summer. The 27 year old will be acquired for a fee of 100 million euros (his release clause), but his arrival will mean that the Blaugrana will have a wealth of attacking talent at their disposal- they already have Messi, Suarez, Coutinho and Dembele, and Griezmann at the Nou Camp would effectively make it a “Famous Five” or a “Fantastic Five”. It would also see Griezmann at the same club as his French national teammate Samuel Umtiti.

Atleti have recently sold Nicolas Gaitan and Yannick Carrasco to Dalian in China. Augusto Fernandez has also left for the Far East, while Luciano Vietto has been loaned to Valencia with an option to buy. Veteran Fernando Torres is also likely to depart the Wanda Metropolitano in the summer. Should Griezmann leave, it does raise doubts over whether Los Colchoneros can continue to be a threat to the Real-Barca hegemony in Spain. Atleti are currently second in Spain and have reached the last 16 of the Europa League
