He got in touch with his sister Maud, who is also his representative, to reopen the club's Barca
We have chosen badly to screw up, a little bit of everything has happened to us. It was not possible to enter into play, it was the autocratic summary of a dean Antoine Griezmann after the trgic night in Turn. But the French, who went unnoticed in the most important game of the season for the Atletico, did not stop to think about that nightmare lived in the Juventus Stadium. It was a long journey back to Madrid. The Champions had returned to falter, only this time began to intuit that it will be the last with the Attico.
So one of the first things that Griezmann did when he got home was to call his sister Maud, who is also his representative, to reopen the Barcelona va, which he himself decided to close with a slam last summer. Now, the answer of the club azulgrana, annoyed by the rude suffered by the player months ago, was simply to study the proposal, but they also expected a movement of his.
And Griezmann's gesture came. On Monday night he met with Simeone, his coach, Miguel Angel Gil, CEO of the Attico and Andrea Berta, the sports director, to announce that he was not going to continue in Madrid. I've made the decision to see other things and have other challenges, he announced his fans in a video posted on the Twitter account of the Attico, not in his. Today the only sure thing is that someone will pay for their freedom. And, also, that you will not do it before July 1. That will be the date on which his rescission clause will go from 200 million to 120, as is hidden in the renewal contract he signed in the Russian town of Istra, during the concentration with France prior to the World Cup. Lucas Hernndez was also in that photo.
Nothing closed with any club
But beyond that declaration of intentions of Griezmann, neither Barcelona, nor any other club, have anything closed. At the Camp Nou they do not have a striker, just with the certainty, now official, that the Atletico will no longer stand in the way. The assurance that this stage will conclude on Saturday, in Valencia, after the match against Levante. And from there …
Those ellipses hide a month of intrigue until July 1. In Barcelona, they distrust because last year they saw him forming a trident together with Messi and Luis Surez. They insist that if Antoine wants to play there, he will end up doing it. But in the offices of the club azulgrana suspect that the PSG can interfere in the operation, offering a salary to Griezmann that was unattainable, as it happened also with its last renovation with the Attica, where happened to win more than 20 million net for the more of 15 that the Bara offers.
With this issue you never know, you have to go calmly, insist on Barcelona, where before anything you should make room for the French and achieve liquidity. And the one chosen to give him his box office is Coutinho, a card of a similar profile but always under suspicion. Its price has been devalued, but still has a market to finance part of the amount demanded by Griezmann's freedom.
