FC Barcelona remain the odds-on favourite to sign Antoine Griezmann this summer. However, the reigning Liga champions are in “no rush” to complete the move and might wait a little longer to acquire the services of the French star.
According to a recent report from Sport, there’s a growing belief of some “concerns in the dressing room” regarding how good would the France international would fit within the team. However, Atletico might not decide to wait a lot of time to get the deal done since they need the cash if they want to pursue Portugal star Joao Felix.
This transfer saga has been in the works for longer than most of us care to admit, with Griezmann stating last summer that he wanted to stay at the club. But now he wants to leave, although there has not been any indication of that coming to reality any time soon.
The only thing that’s clear is that he’s leaving Madrid, but what if Barcelona takes too long on deciding what to do? Several other sides, including Manchester United and Manchester City, have been linked with a move for the French starlet. Don’t be surprised to see them entering the race in a final attempt to steal Griezmann from Los Blaugranas.
