Real Madrid, the several times’ winner of the Champions League, has held decisive meetings with Antoine Griezmann and his representative during the last 48 hours to try to divert a possible movement from Barcelona.
It was announced very recently that Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann would not continue at the club next season as Barcelona tried to sign him.
Griezmann was about to sign with the Blaugrana at the start of this season, then stay at Atletico Madrid with the intervention of Diego Simeone and cons.
However, the club’s failure to mount a serious challenge in the Liga and a discreet exit from the Champions League – coupled with the pending departures of Lucas Hernandez and Diego Godin – have made him seriously reconsider his decision. Final is not far and spectators have got their tickets for the Champions League final.
After initially expressing interest in a player who had rejected them last season, Barcelona has renewed its relationship with this player since he announced his intention to leave Atletico Madrid after his own disastrous exit in the Champions League under Liverpool.
However, Diario Gol indicates that Real Madrid is also an active part in all negotiations with club president Florentino Perez and manager Zinedine Zidane, who have had close discussions with the player and his representative over the past few years.
The report says they want to measure his interest in the club or at least determine if he is tied to Paris, the PSG is also expected to be strongly interested in the player.
Whatever the scenario, Real Madrid takes advantage: he is left with a star striker in his ranks or, if Griezmann chooses the PSG, receives a helping hand to try to sign the long-time goal Neymar.
