Latest Football Transfer News: Valverde keen to sign Atletico Madrid Star

The future of the Atletico Madrid Striker has been stated clear. Last summer, Manchester United offered a whooping sum of money to bring the player to Old Trafford.

He decided to stay put, because of the transfer circumstances at Atletico. Everybody expects him to do decide his future next summer.

Barcelona are willing to match his €100m buy-out clause and the club’s president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, has met Griezmann’s family for lunch, that’s because he doesn’t have an agent and his sister looks after his affairs.

Griezmann will leave next summer for either United or Barca, but the Catalans are favourites at this moment in time.

There is talk of Barcelona bringing in both Griezmann and Philippe Coutinho, but there are few problems with these reports.

Firstly, Barca’s wage structure accounts for over 80 per cent of the club’s income. The wages are so high and they desperately need more income and that is what they are trying to work on.

Until that’s secured, I don’t think they can afford both Griezmann and Coutinho.

The figure being bandied about is €140m, it’s not true, but, of course, Barcelona can go back and say we couldn’t get Coutinho because it was too expensive but in the summer they might be able to show off Griezmann instead.

 

As it stands, Liverpool have not put a price on Coutinho, regardless of what the Catalan press are saying.

Barcelona are looking for a reason to say Coutinho was too expensive and that they couldn’t afford him.
