The arrival of Griezmann will mean to give a dump total to the line of Barcelona attack. The French will plant , in theory, in left band and will form trident beside Suárez and Messi. This will displace of the eleven to Dembélé and Coutinho, that could remain without place
The arrival of Antoine Griezmann goes to suppose a total change of the line of attack of the FC Barcelona. The French forward is one of the big stars of the League Santander and of the French selection, with which proclaimed champion of the world does only a year. Has quality, goal, speed and intelligence, and would have to be the second sword of Leo Messi.
In principle and if it did not occur at all odd, the Frenchman will play in the left side of the Barcelona attack. Everything aims to that Ernesto Valverde will keep the 4-3-3 and that the French will play beside Luis Suárez and Messi. On the paper, seems a trident demoledor and that it could cuajar very well. The three have a lot of goal and besides can combine between them. The only doubt is to see if Griezmann can go back to adapt to the left extreme, place that does not occupy since it left of the Real Sociedad.
But that is not the only problem, since the arrival of the international by France will leave to two victims by the way in the staff of the Barça. Ousmane Dembélé And Philippe Coutinho remain very touched and his future in the Barcelona is an incógnita. Both occupied the left-handed extreme during all the past course and went exchanging the place to title. Besides, the continuous injuries of the French helped to that both had spare opportunities to play.
But with Griezmann these opportunities go to see reduced considerably and both will begin the year like acting. Dembélé Is very young still and seems that the Barça has faith in him and in his possibilities. His character and his endeble physical play in his against, but his quality, speed and potential do him be a footballer to have very in account. The Bayern wants him at all costs, but the culés only will negotiate by him by a cuantiosa great. The idea is that it remain , since in spite of the signing of the ex of the Athletic, will have a lot of minutes and will be an alternative of luxury so much for the right band as for the left.
It is necessary to remember, besides, that Griezmann can play also by the centre. The Frenchman could be the relief of Suárez in the crashes in which the charrúa rest, that will not be few taking into account his physicist and his age. If Antoine plays of forward, Dembélé would have to be his substitute in left band. The ex of the Borussia Dortmund follows having place, but if it remains will have to accustom to not being the first option.
Situation complicated for Coutinho
The one who remains more touched is definitely Coutinho. The Brazilian was one of the worst the past season and his performance was very disappointing in all the senses. It cost 120 million euros more other 40 in variables and his exit is complicated because anybody wants to pay so much money by him. In the club listen offers, but for the moment there is not any proposal in firm. The player wants to remain , but neither descartaría go if it arrived him a good offer.
The problem is that if it remains seems that it goes to play much less of what has come doing it up to now. The left band has 'overbooking' with Griezmann and Dembélé, that besides are profiles of players that adapt better to this place. The Brazilian is more a mediapunta reconverted to left extreme and in the Barcelona has not found still his place neither his best version. It could fit in the centre of the field with something more than freedom, but when it has played here neither has surrendered. If it finishes remaining, Valverde will have to try find him a place to a footballer that seems to have lost already his train in the Barça.
