Barcelona president Josep Bartomeu apparently has no intention of making a move to sign Antoine Griezmann at the moment. The report says that the complexity and risks of this kind of transfer have Bartomeu a bit timid.

Griezmann of course announced that he wanted to depart Atletico Madrid recently, and this comes on the back of rejecting a move to Barcelona just last summer. His release clause will drop to €120m on July 1st.

The report says that the move by Griezmann to turn down Barcelona last summer would be difficult to work through in the locker room, and difficult to forgive by the fans. I’m gonna be honest, I don’t think the fans would have much difficulty forgiving Griezmann once he puts on the Barcelona kit.
