In the last hours, information has emerged that affirms that Barcelona and Atlético de Madrid are once again involved in a negotiation, this is an exchange of footballers, the culés would hand over Antoine Griezmman to receive in exchange the Spanish Saúl Ñíguez, an old goal of the Blaugrana team.
However, the most recent information affirms that what arose as an option of the directives of both teams, has transcended the technical bodies and both Ronald Koeman and Simeone would be comfortable with the players they would receive, therefore, both technicians would have given his ‘ok’ to the double signing.
Saúl meets the needs that Ronald seeks to solve in midfield, which were aggravated by the punishment of Ilaix and the unsuccessful signing of Wijnaldum. While, Griezmann is one of the footballers that Simeone likes the most, who is looking for a partner for Luis Suárez and considers that the Frenchman is the perfect piece to complete his attack. The two teams will surely start formal negotiations soon, and at some point the decision will be left to both players who have other options on the table, mainly from the Premier League.
