The return of Antoine Griezmann to the Athletic of Madrid is a reality after a big uncertainty during the market veraniego. Although the operation closed to ultima hour, the reality is that it already carried a lot of months looked for by the offices of the Camp Nou. The main reason was that neither Griezmann has felt to taste in the Barcelona as in the Athletic neither the player has contributed what the Catalan club expected.

From the past summer, after a first year like Barcelona that did not fulfil the expectations, sounded with strength the possibility that Griezmann went the Barça. However, the surroundings of the footballer cleared that this did not want to go to Paris. It sounded then a possible turn to the Athletic, but the colchoneros did not seem decided and the informal contacts evidenciaron some very move# away requests between both teams.

The past season initiated with the feeling that the attacker started with a more hopeful aura. It was missing him tarpaulin in the first parties, but if it gave samples that it was evolving. Even to starts of this year the Frenchman had a leading paper, especially in the Supercopa and in the Glass of Rey, where was the hero in the traced back in front of the Granada to the equal that in the party of the final.

However, when it finished this course could not ratify his improvement. In front of the economic problems of the club, the summer passed with a premise: To renew to Messi had to go out Griezmann. Then, the patience of "The Principito" already seemed to finish him. No because it was exasperated for going , but because it never wanted to be a problem for the Catalan group, as long as it could go back to the Athletic, here where in truth felt that it had been happy.

The insistence of Simeone

Luckily for the French, Simeone moved sky and earth to recover him. And like this it did it to him know an and again in the last months. The contacts between Griezmann and the rojiblancos have been constant. In fact, two months ago that the two parts which would be the conditions of his return. It was missing the deal with the Barça. The colchoneros tried by all the means the truque by Saúl, but to the Barcelona did not convince them said proposal.

This possible that, knowing that it came the of Messi, that the Barça changed his speech: "Griezmann remains and has to be the new leader", said . The operation seemed 'dead'. But at the end all know that the arks of the club are struck. When almost it closed the market, the club accepted to give off of the French in an operation that supposes him a saving of almost 140 million euros between the sale and what costs his wage.
