Barcelona director Eric Abidal has been talking about what the teams need in attack amid heavy speculation the club will bring back Neymar this summer.

The Spanish champions already have Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Malcom, Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho and now Antoine Griezmann has joined the club.

Abidal says six is the right number of attackers and talked about what Griezmann will bring to the club.

“We needed six attacking players and, with Griezmann, we have those six. After that, it’s the coach who makes the decisions. To start, his talent. We all know this.

“His experience too because he’s won a lot of titles. He was a very important player for Atletico Madrid.

“He can make a difference in the big matches and is capable of playing in various positions. He’s still a great goalscorer and Barca need players like him.”
