Antoine Griezmann arrived to the FC Barcelona in 2019, a year later of what was planned by part of the Barcelona group. The culés wanted to fichar to the French in the summer of 2018 and had an agreement with him. Everything seemed to indicate that the forward went to abandon the Athletic of Madrid, but then the Frenchman changed of opinion and decided to renew with the colchoneros by a greater wage of the that went to pay him in the City Condal.

But that was not the denouement of the history between the one of Macon and the Barça, since less than a year afterwards, the player changed of idea and decided to leave the Atleti. When it announced it no desveló where wanted to leave, but little by little developed the events and in the summer of 2019 the Catalans paid his clause of rescission. The attacker arrived to the Camp Nou at last in return of 120 million euros.

But the fact to refuse to the Barcelona in 2018 did not go to forget as well as like this, as he same has commissioned to explain in 'Universe Valdano'. The French spoke in the program of 'Go' on what happened just when it arrived to the team blaugrana with Leo Messi. The Argentinian was one of which campaigned so that the champion of the world arrived in 2018, by what felt very annoying with his "no".

"I spoke with Leo when I arrived and said me that it fucked him when I refused to go the first time, because he had done public comments and that at the end said that no", explained Griezmann. This bad roll can see in some moments, since besides this summer the star that Read wanted to for the Barça was not 'The Principito'. The '10' wanted to to Neymar Jr, good fellow his and with the one who already had played, but the one who finish arriving was the ex colchonero.

But no only the one of Rosario felt annoying with him after all the occurred, since he same lived as there were other players that also seemed to be angered by his refusal in 2018. "I arrived to the Barcelona, that had refused it a year before. It could have comments until in the changing room, of journalists, of the fans and therefore when I arrived wanted to ask pardon in the field. If some have felt offended will ask pardon giving it all in the field", said.

Borrón And new account between Messi and Griezmann

Nevertheless, in spite of all this, Griezmann also left clear that Messi communicated him at all more arrive that it went to support him to the end. "Also it said me that in spite of the anger were in the same team and that went to death with me, and is what notice and seat each day", recognised. The problem is that futbolísticamente both follow far to have understood, something that is being very hurtful for the Barcelona and for them same.
