Joan Laporta and Mateu Alemany have spoken on the rumours of a possible exit of Griezmann... And the situation is more than complicated
In the FC Barcelona are conscious of two things: the club needs urgently 'undo' of several players in the market of signings, but also that it is very complicated to achieve teams that interest in the index cards of the Barcelona footballers by his high available price or wage. Antoine Griezmann is one of this and now the leaders of the Barça have confirmed the difficulty that has his operation.
In the presentation of Memphis Depay like new player of the Barça, Joan Laporta, Rafa Yuste and Mateu Alemany accompanied to the Dutch of 27 years during his first press conference and, as it was to expect , the Barcelona leaders received a sinfín of questions on the actuality of the club, especially regarding the sale of players, with Griezmann like big leading.
The Barcelona president elogió to the French forward, but did not ensure his continuity in the Barça of face to the season 2021-2022: "Griezmann is player of the Barça, but can not deny that they have given movements in the last weeks. We have the footballer, but there has been interest by the player because it treats of a footballer of world-wide size", began saying.
"It will not be easy that there is an offer the sufficiently interesting so that Griezmann go out".
However, the president culé did not want to 'wet' in principle and was Mateu Alemany the one who gave his impressions. "We are in a special market in which there is little financial availability and a lot of imagination with the exchange of footballers. We value a lot to Antoinne. It is a top player", said the director of football of the Barça. "It will not be easy that there is an offer the sufficiently interesting so that it go out. They have given situations that we have not posed and will see what goes to suceder", recognised.
In the press conference, the directors were questioned by the possibility of an exchange with the Athletic of Madrid, as it had posed does some weeks, and the maximum mandator culé was very clear in this regard, recognising that: "the market is beginning. At all it is moving by the Covid and the reduction of income. Griezmann Has market and there are clubs interested and what do we is to build our staff looking for the financial balance".
In spite of this, Laporta has signalled that "with Antoinne do not have any problem" and that "are loved with the like professional", but that "are opened to all the proposals that present because we are in a moment delicate. We have to do balances. We are opened to study options, but any of them will prejudice the do a competitive team", sentenced.
