Rumors of an unlikely exchange of chips between Atlético de Madrid and Barça that would consist of a Saúl for Griezmann, have emerged on the shores of the Camp Nou. The culés, evidently, would not see with good eyes this operation.
After two years of doubtful success for the Frenchman in the Blaugrana ranks, the president seems to be determined to dispense with his services. The main reason that would lead Laporta to look for Griezmann a new house would be the exorbitant salary that the French crack charges. The 34 million euros per season puts him right now in the first salary step of the squad in the absence of Messi.
Despite all these data that freeze the blood, it must be admitted that Griezmann’s last season with Barça is quite good. In terms of scorers, he has exceeded twenty, and the vast majority of them of enviable quality. His number of goals per minute played has improved dramatically in 2021.
After Messi, he is the player who has given Barça the most points in the league championship with his goals and has finished the campaign understanding with the Argentine to perfection, a circumstance that they told us a year ago and no one would be able to believe it. .
If it weren’t for the need to lower the team’s salary mass, the club would not have considered selling the Frenchman, but at this point in time, the Barça forward, if something is characterized by an excess of troops, It does not seem crazy to try to achieve a transfer.
You can never criticize his dedication and his effort to succeed at Barcelona, and surely the level he showed last season is more than enough to give him a new opportunity at Barça, but the circumstances are what they are and although he deserves to continue in the team he has many ballots to leave.
