FC Barcelona could be considering trying a barter with Atlético de Madrid between Griezmann and Joao Félix. But would the Catalans really win with this change?
This past Thursday informed that the Athletic of Madrid and the FC Barcelona could be studying a barter between Antoine Griezmann and Joao Félix. The Portuguese would arrive to the Camp Nou and the French would return to Wanda Metropolitan two years after his exit. For now only they are rumours, but in 'FCBN' want to analyse at the end this operation to understand if for real it would go out profitable for the Barça. Eston Would be the pros and the contras of this exchange:
Pros Of the change by Joao
- His potential: Although the Portuguese still has not exploded, has only 21 years and already has given samples of all the football that carries inside. The attacker has spare qualities as to turn into a 'crack' and could be question of time, work and patience that achieve it. The Barcelona would be fichando to a 'potential Balloon of Gold' and would undo of a player of 30 years to the that only remain him three or four to the maximum level.
- It would fit very well with the style of game: Unlike 'Grizzy', that is a forward more 'simple' to the that likes him more finalise the played that initiate them, the luso is a generator of game and football. Technically it is a delight and would fit to perfection in the game of touch and possession that practises the Barça. In fact, surely it would adapt better to the requirements of the culés of what has done it the Frenchman, since has more magic in his boots.
- A relief on a long-term basis for Messi: Leo has already almost 34 years and if it remains will do it only until 2023. The Barcelona does not have right now to anybody young and with the necessary potential to relieve to the '10', but could have it fichando to Joao. The luso has the quality, the shot, the qualities and the necessary youth to be able to be one of the best of the world and could be an only opportunity to do with him. Besides, it could learn of the best during two seasons in which it could keep growing and improving.
Contras Of the traspaso
- Griezman Already is a reality: Although it has not given the level that expected of him, the French is already a reality and this course has given him a lot to the Barça. The Frenchman has marked 19 goals and has given 12 assistances, being key for the team in a lot of occasions. On the other hand, the colchonero is still a 'melon for opening' that only has left fogonazos of his innegable quality. It seems that it could be a big star, but is prompt to say it and therefore it is a risky bet.
- Joao Could bump with Messi: Although it is very polyvalent and can play of 'false 9' and in any one of the two bands, the position predilecta of the Portuguese is the one of second forward. But in the Barcelona that is the place of Leo, by what would have to accommodate to any another place. On a long-term basis it is not a problem by the age of the '10', but in the short term yes could be it if it takes in adapting .
- Joao, irregular and with less goal: In the Athletic, although the style of the Cholo Simeone has not come him at all well, Joao has showed that it is a very irregular player. It is something natural by his age and is not alarming, although it is necessary to take it into account. Besides, to day of today Griezmann has quite more goal that he, something of what has taken advantage of the Barça. Bet by the luso would involve to renounce to several so many by campaign until it finish to explode, if it is that it arrives it to do.
