According to Sport, Antoine Griezmann, via his sister Maud, and FC Barcelona will meet to discuss the difficulties of the French and his future at the club
Each match of FC Barcelona reveals an ever widening gap between Antoine Griezmann and his club, FC Barcelona. Confined to the bench by Quique Setien, Griezmann rarely comes into play, and his performance is felt. In a Barça in full crisis, which sees the title of champion receding, its trainer being threatened whereas it does not seem to be listened to any more within anybody within its group, and Lionel Messi which would wish to leave, the problem Antoine Griezmann darkens the sky over Catalonia even more.
Griezmann determined to stay …
To settle it, Antoine’s sister and adviser Maud Griezmann asked to meet FC Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu, according to Sport. The goal would be to stop the bleeding as soon as possible so that the situation does not become inextricable, by clarifying to the club why he lost his starting position and what the club intends to do with him. The French world champion would not feel ready to throw in the towel and therefore would not consider leaving but he would still like to express his dissatisfaction with the situation. At the same time, he would have asked those around him to avoid declarations so as not to add fuel to the fire.
… but advertised as currency
Griezmann should also meet his coach quickly, to discuss these sports problems. Other Spanish media even interpret Griezmann’s desire to stay at Barça, like that of a player who knows that his coach is no longer very long at the club and that he has all the qualities to please the next coach . This does not prevent The Republic, Italian newspaper, to announce an offer from Barça to Inter containing Griezmann to obtain Lautaro Martinez, or the Spanish chain Four to evoke a Griezmann-Coutinho exchange against Neymar.
