Antoine Griezmann has been linked with Barcelona again. This time it’s a report from Mundo Deportivo that the Atletico Madrid forward is willing to join Barcelona at a reduced rate.

The forward makes an annual salary of €23 million, and Barcelona reportedly offered him €16m a year ago, which he would now apparently be willing to accept.

Of course the Frenchman has already come out and played down links to Barca. Which, to be fair, he’s had to do for years and has stayed at Atletico each time.

“It’s the same every year, and I am used to it and tired of it.”

If I were giving Griezmann advice, I would say that in order to completely eliminate these annoying rumors of him leaving Madrid for Barcelona he needs to just shut them down.

The best way to do that is to simply join Barcelona at a reduced cost and help them win the Champions League once again. That easy.
