Barcelona were interested in Antoine Griezmann for so long, you could have written a soap opera about the whole story. But now it seems like this prolonged story might be coming to an end, as Barcelona are no longer interested in signing the French international.
Atletico Madrid’s star player was heavily linked with a move from Wanda Metropolitano to Camp Nou, especially last summer, but after the release of an in-depth documentary, it was confirmed that he would be staying loyal to Atletico instead of joining Barca.
That is why Barcelona are turning their attentions to other players. They are believed to be moving on and looking at players like Luka Jovic and Maxi Gomez. Two strikers are not yet at the level of the Frenchman, but are youth prospects with bags of potential. Eric Abidal has even gone to Milan to scout Jovic in Eintracht Frankfurt’s 1-0 win over Inter.
It looks like the Serbian and the Uruguayan are now getting more attention than Griezmann himself.
