Saint-Germain-en-Laye – Coach Thomas Tuchel on Friday swept the rumor linking Paris SG star Antoine Griezmann, whose announcement of the departure of Atlético shook the transfer window: "This is not realistic! "said the German.
"He can play with all the teams of the world. It's a pleasure for all coaches and teams. At the moment, it's not realistic", explained the Swabian technician, on the eve of the Championship match against Dijon.
Paris SG, which has already spent record amounts in the past, including signing Neymar in 2017 for EUR 222 million, often comes back in discussions when it comes to transfers. But the priority of the club, before a summer that promises to be hectic, is not in attack, but in defense, recalled Tuchel.
"We are looking for players with certain profiles. We have to create a team. There are profiles that we need. They are still defensive players. We have to start with that"he assured.
Antoine Griezmann, 2018 World Champion with the Blues, announced Tuesday his departure from Atlético after five seasons. The 28-year-old Mâcon striker is reportedly close to Barcelona, according to the press.
