Barcelona Won\'t Rule Out Selling Antoine Griezmann 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Jul 23, 2021 3:20 am

Joan Laporta won\'t rule out the possibility of selling Antoine Griezmann this summer. 

Barcelona have held talks with Atletico Madrid over a swap deal of Griezmann involving Saul Niguez. Talks, however, stalled over how the two clubs valued the players.

\"Griezmann is a Barca player, he has a contract with the club until 2024 and unless circumstances change, we are counting on him,\" Laporta said at the presentation of Memphis Depay on Wednesday.

\"There have been some movements on the market and we can\'t deny that there\'s been interest in him. That\'s a sign of his quality.

\"It\'s a special market and you have to use your imagination, perhaps thinking in swap deals, but we value Antoine a lot. The club made a big investment in him and we are happy with him.

\"It\'s not easy for a club to come in with an offer for a player at his level. But the transfer window is just getting started and there\'s a market for Griezmann.

\"If things start moving, we\'re open to all proposals because we\'re in a delicate moment financially and we have to balance the books for to comply with the league\'s financial fair play rules.\"

They won't rule it out, eh?

Completely transparent spin control. They've been calling every club in Europe trying to move Antoine.
