The management of FC Barcelona has made a decision about the situation of the French striker Antoine Griezmann.
The club of Catalonia does not plan to part with the 29-year-old forward during this winter mercato. According to information from the newspaper Sport, Barça has denied the hypothesis of a departure of the 2018 world champion during the month of January. Although in difficulty in the squad of Ronald Koeman, the former Atletico Madrid player retains the confidence of Barça, where he landed in the summer of 2019 for the sum of 120 million euros and with whom he has a contract running until June 2024.
Before the match at Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday evening, in a late match of the second day of the La Liga, the Dutch technician made a new point on the case of the native of Mâcon, in front of the press. “Antoine knows his role. I talk to him a lot and he’s a boy I like. He’s very open and he wants to talk about his job. If you play with three midfielders, you have to find the best formula for the three strikers playing in front. We have Leo (Messi). Ousmane (Dembélé) is much better physically and he’s an important player because he has depth in his game. I like this type of player a lot. There are a lot of matches to play and you can’t always play with the same players.
