The FC Barcelona no fichará to Antoine Griezmann this summer, independently that the French attacker can agree in turning into new player of the Barcelona group when fitting perfectly in the staff.

The Athletic of Madrid increased him the clause of rescission of 100 to 200 million euros, since it will not be able to fichar during the present market of signings when being suffering the consequences of the sanction of the FIFA.

In this coyuntura, and splitting of the base that the FC Barcelona will not pay 200 'kilos' by Griezmann although it have received already the 222 million euros of the traspaso of Neymar, the reality is that the Athletic neither has foreseen to negotiate with the FC Barcelona a discount of the clause stipulated, what dilutes completely the possibilities to see to Griezmann with the Barcelona T-shirt from September.

But... And from January of 2018? By then the clause of rescission of Griezmann already will have gone down again until the 100 million euros, since the Athletic will be able to attend to the market for fichar to players and inscribe them in the staff, as it occurred him to the Barça when it did with the signings of Aleix Vidal and Burn Turan, incorporated in summer and inscribed in January.

The Barça would have to convince to Griezmann

The big problem would be to convince to a Griezmann that, in spite of that would be loved to play in the FC Barcelona, surely would not want to leave 'hanged' to his current team, the Athletic of Madrid, to half of the next season 2017-18.

They exist other alternatives for this same summer, as Paulo Dybala, that is the preferred by the fans culé after Griezmann. Other players like Dembélé or the own Coutinho, that can play of extreme, have also many follower between the fans. The Barcelona, if finally it does not achieve fichar to Dembélé, could have in January an alternative inmejorable: Griezmann by 100 'kilos'. The big challenge, convince to the player.
