The French attacker looks to resurrect his career as he contemplates a move away from Barcelona in the coming months
Antoine Griezmann completed a controversial move to the Catalan giants, FC Barcelona in the summer of 2019. The French attacker has managed to appear more than 50 times, registering 16 goals and 4 assists in all competitions for the Blaugrana. Nevertheless, it is safe to say that his move hasn’t worked out well as he eyes an exit in the coming months.
Reports suggest that the Frenchman is on the verge of returning to his former club, Atletico Madrid. Although this deal can be ruled off due to the lack of professionalism showed by Griezmann at the time of negotiations. The French international managed to close the deal months before the transfer window without notifying the Rojiblancos.
However, a move for Griezmann could prove to be mutually beneficial for both parties as Diego Simeone knows how to make the best out of the versatile forward. Alongside, Diego Costa‘s contract is running out and Atleti needs a goal scorer more than ever. If the 32-year-old decides to end his Atletico Madrid career, a move for Griezmann could prove out to be favorable for Rojiblancos.
With the recent emergence of Joao Felix and the fresh acquisition of Luis Suarez, Simone could potentially create a desirable attacking trio with the Frenchman in the spotlight. In his time at the Catalan club, the 28-year-old has failed to adapt to the demands of the club and is willing to move away in order to resurrect his career.
The former Real Sociedad striker has received interest from the French side, Paris Saint-Germain as they look strengthen their squad to win the prestigious Champions League trophy in the imminent future. A move to the French capital could work well as AC Milan are reportedly attempting to recruit the former Inter Milan striker, Mauro Icardi.
However, the French international is reluctant to move away from the Spanish League and Atletico Madrid as he reaches the peak of his physical abilities and any sudden change would hinder his growth. Griezmann’s return entirely depends upon Diego Simeone as his decision could turn out to be an influential factor in this trade.
