Decisions in football are volatile and the function of results is altered. The dramatic elimination of Barcelona in the semifinals of the Champions League has caused a hecatomb on the Nou Camp floor and has completely altered the road map that Josep Maria Bartomeu had planned to undertake the last two years of his term. To the point that, at this moment the only untouchable is Leo Messi. Y If a few weeks ago it was completely impossible for Antoine Griezmann to make it to the Barça ranks after last summer's defeat, now he is once again the top choice to lead a revolution in the Culé squad.
The debacle last Tuesday demands changes and an exciting project after four seasons wandering around Europe. Barcelona needs to reinforce itself and do it well, with players of a contrasted level, who can discuss the ownership of a backbone that remains intact from the early years of the Luis Enrique era. Already registered Frenkie de Jong, which has cost 86 million euros, and practically tied Matthijs de Ligt, which will cost another 80 million euros approximately, the objective is to reinforce the front with a ram of bells before the signs of fatigue that Luis Suarez is giving.
The Uruguayan can not be reproached for anything and his performance is beyond any doubt but it is also a truism that time does not pass in bucket (is 32 years old) and that his knee problems prevent him from performing as before. In addition, there is no replacement in the template guarantees and all players who have signed in recent years have not been up to it. For this reason, the Board of Directors has slipped the name of Griezmann again.
Although the French bothered the fans and the regents of the club with the plantón this past summer When the agreement was closed, it is considered to be a striker who meets all the necessary requirements: he knows the Spanish League, his numbers speak for themselves and he has the ability to generate that illusion that Liverpool blurred. Still persists the sensation in the partner of feeling despised and in the directive of the ridiculous fact when finding out by a television program that decided to remain in the Athletic one when they were on the verge of announcing it officially, But there is nothing that a image washing I can not solve.
The player has already offered
Barcelona has already received the call from Griezmann's environment, sorry for having missed the Barca train last year. Several factors have changed French opinion. First of all the disenchantment After being eliminated at the first change of a Champions that I thought to conquer and whose end will be played in the Wanda. To this has been added one more season without titles while in Barcelona he would opt for the doublet. In addition, players who were decisive to convince him to stay, will not be next year. This is the case of Godín, Lucas, Filipe Luis or Diego Costa.
Barcelona knows that it will have to pay 120 million euros but he intends to enter enough euros with the sale of several players. Two who are on the starting pole are Coutinho, of which there are still 90 million to be amortized, and Rakitic, which has a big sign in Europe and for which you could earn a lot of money.
