The Barcelona, who spent 120 million to snatch the world champion from theAtletico Madrid, has every intention of reviving an idea of an exchange that had been aired more timidly in the past few weeks. The proposal is to send Griezmann to Milan, the Nerazzurri shore, and to receive Lautaro Martinez, valued by Inter in exchange 90 million euros.
In his season at Barça, Griezmann never shone: on the contrary, he never found the right agreement nor with Leo Messi nor with Luis Suarez, so much to climb in the hierarchies of Setien, which after the match against Atletico explicitly declared of not having to apologize with the French footballer for having let him enter the field practically at the end of the game.
The Catalan coach himself added that the Frenchman had stayed out of the starting eleven for technical choice and not to alter the team’s balance. A move that the player did not like and that could convince him to pack his bags at the end of the season, whatever the final result considering that Barcelona is running both for the title of the Liga both for the Champions League.
The statements of the ‘Daily Express’ are then joined by those of ‘Le Parisien’, according to which the sister-agent Griezmann’s will reach Catalonia in the coming days to frame the situation with the club and discuss the possible transfer to the Nerazzurri.
Currently, Griezmann is bound by a contract that will expire in late June 2024, which provides for an overall engagement of 17 million per season. A figure on which Inter will have to reason and which, at the moment, represents the only real obstacle to a deal destined to become one of the “hottest” of the summer.
