The Barcelona club announced that it already has deposited the clause of rescission of the previous agreement of the French to be able to establish the new, that will join him to the Catalan entity during five seasons.

In spite of treating of a footballer contrasted, champion of the world with his selection and star of the Athletic of Madrid during several seasons, it is necessary to analyse his arrival in all his points, the positive and the negative. Antoine Griezmann arrives to contribute his tremendo talent to the Barça, but also generating division of opinions in the barcelonismo.

The well and the bad of the signing of Griezmann


Antoine Griezmann is a crack. The French is a big goleador, but also handles a lot of other registers, as his capacity to give the last pass, his ease to associate , his desmarques of split and his quality for desbordar. Besides, it is polyvalent, can play in the band, in the mediapunta or even like leading centre.

His arrival will contribute to resolve the dependency goleadora that there has been to date in the so many of Leo Messi and of Luis Suárez. A third scorer will improve the registers culés, as it happened when Neymar was beside the Argentinian and to the Uruguayan. Besides, 120 million euros by one of the best forwards of the world, that besides is fully adapted to LaLiga and to the language, is not a so high price.


It does hardly some months, Griezmann played with the illusions of the barcelonismo and finally denied to accept a proposal of the FC Barcelona, waiting for announcing it by means of a documentary that mediatizó and demoró the operation. In the Camp Nou, was taken like a species of betrayal and, when the French arrived to play the Barça-Athletic, the fans, with his boos to the Frenchman, left clear that did not want to him see neither in painting.

Besides, the FC Barcelona has seen like a player that the past year cost 100 millions, now costs 120 being a greater year and without having done a big season. Besides, it is a player that works better of second tip, having a '9' of reference, by what does not solve of the all the problem of the substitute of Luis Suárez.
