Antoine Griezmann has reportedly given his okay for Barcelona to sign Neymar. The Frenchmen was a cause of concern when it came to the potential signing of Neymar.

The thought process was that Neymar would return to his old spot, leaving Griezmann out to dry potentially. The report says that Griezmann would be okay with the transfer taking place.

Given that Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi aren’t getting any younger, the chances for Griezmann would in all likelihood still be there. Although, this is all before any concrete has happened. If a Neymar transfer were to take place, it would be interesting to see what happened once Griezmann sat on the bench for a few matches in a row.
