The FC Barcelona has closed the signing of Antoine Griezmann, an arrival that was a secret to voices from did a lot of weeks. The French forward is a footballer with a lot of possibilities in attack, since it can occupy several positions giving a satisfactory performance to the team.

That's why Ernesto Valverde will have work to treat to fit to the already ex footballer of the Athletic of Madrid. It is necessary to remember that the Txingurri explains also in attack with players like Leo Messi, Luis Suárez and Ousmane Dembélé, by what the arrival of Griezmann could do him modify the diagram or the form to play. 

The four possible diagrams with Griezmann

4-3-3 (with Griezmann, Messi and Suárez)

One of the possibilities that will have Ernesto Valverde will be to accompany to Leo Messi and to Luis Suárez with Griezmann. The French would split from the left side, the Argentinian would do it from the right and the Uruguayan would be the attendant to litigate with the central from the tip of the attack. A possibility that would leave went to Ousmane Dembélé.

4-3-3 (with Griezmann, Messi and Dembélé)

Another option would be to situate to Ousmane Dembélé in the left band and to Leo Messi like false '9', with Antoine Griezmann in the right band. An option that would add desborde to the offensive trident with Dembélé and that would lose the figure of the pure forward, Luis Suárez. The variant of this diagram would be with Griezmann of false ariete and Messi in the right.

4-2-3-1 (with Griezmann, Messi, Suárez and Dembélé)

If Ernesto Valverde decides to change the diagram and recover the 4-2-3-1 that so many results gave him in the Athletic Club of Bilbao, would fit him the four cracks in the same eleven. In this case, Suárez would play descolgado, Dembélé in the right band, Griezmann like mediapunta and Messi in the right, although with full freedom. These two last could exchange positions.

4-4-2 (with Griezmann, Messi, Suárez and Dembélé)

Another variant so that they can play the four offensive stars of the FC Barcelona would be a 4-4-2. Antoine Griezmann, in this case, would occupy a side, since has good capacity for replegar in defence. Dembélé Would act in the left band and Leo Messi and Luis Suárez would be descolgados in attack.
