Josep Maria Bartomeu rejected this past summer an Atlético de Madrid exchange for Griezmann. The mattresses wanted to recover the French and offered three footballers, Morata, Lemar and Mario Hermoso
Antoine Griezmann arrived the past season to the FC Barcelona to convert the the second sword of Leo Messi. The French was the star chosen by Josep Maria Bartomeu to reinforce the team and therefore it disbursed 120 million euros in him. A year and half after this can say that the incorporation is resulting to be one of the greater disappointments of the history of the club.
The Frenchman did not surrender to the level expected the past course and carried a lot of criticisms by part of the press and of the fans of the Barça. It did not adapt to the game of the team, neither had tuning with his mates and did not contribute big thing to the game of the team, in spite of finishing with 15 goals. This, as they explained in 'Sportive Carousel' recently, carried to the Athletic of Madrid to try recover to the that went his leader during several years.
The colchoneros, that came of a bad season, seems that they spoke with the Barcelona and tried to convince to the Barcelona so that they gave them back to Antoine. The rojiblancos were very seriously and offered a barter of footballers to tackle the operation. In concrete, the ones of Wanda Metropolitan offered to Mario Beautiful, Lemar and Álvaro Morata by the champion of the world with France.
Bartomeu, that left clear during the summer that the one of Macon was untransferable, refused completely the ofrecimiento. The already ex president preferred to give him a second opportunity to the forward and communicated him to the Madrilenian that to the club did not interest him the exchange. Besides, any of the three players that gave the Atleti excited especially to the culés, that had preferred to Joao Félix, Koke or Saúl Ñíguez.
Beautiful and Morata, interesting for the Barça
Beautiful, that this Saturday completed a fantastic meeting like left-handed side, could have been a good signing to reinforce the centre of the defence and the left side. The ex canterano of the Real Madrid is fast to the crossing, polyvalent and takes out very well the balloon played from backwards, by what would have been ideal for the gear blaugrana. On the other hand, Álvaro Morata also could have been useful, although his style does not fit so much with the Barça.
The also ex of the Madrid is powerful, fast and goes very well of head, but technically is quite just and is not the best definidor of the world. In spite of this, in front of the course of Luis Suárez, would have been an interesting incorporation. Finally, Lemar is the less attractive player of this 'pack' that offered the Athletic. In spite of his innegable quality, the French is extremely inconsistente and cold, something that has planted him in the door of exit of the group rojiblanco.
