It exists the possibility that, in addition to Saúl Ñíguez, another player of the Atleti go in in the operation of barter with the Barça... And Laporta has to his favourite
The FC Barcelona continues working to close the exchange with the Athletic of Madrid that would allow the exit of Antoine Griezmann of the Camp Nou and fulfil with the big aim of the Barcelona to rid the mass salarial for like this inscribir to Leo Messi and the rest of signings in the staff respecting the 'fair play' financial of LaLiga. For the moment, the Madrilenian group has put on the table the name of Saúl Ñíguez, but no descarta that they have other footballers in the operation.
The true is that the 'colchoneros' expect to carry out the barter without adding economic compensation any, but the big problem is that the value of Griezmann is higher of the of Saúl, by what the Atleti would have to add a quantity from among 15 to 20 million euros in the operation. However, the Atleti insists in not paying the extra sum and the Barça would finish losing.
'Catalonia Ràdio' had informed this Wednesday that have sounded the names of Lodi and Mario Beautiful like two possible candidates to recalar in the Camp Nou, but are not the players that really interest to Joan Laporta. Different means, 'Sportive World' and 'Sport' between them, have desvelado that to the Barcelona president would like him achieve the traspaso of Joãor Félix, but would be an operation more than complicated.
It fits to remember that it does some months sounded the possibility of a barter Joãor-Griezmann, but from the Atleti it descartaron immediately because they want to give him continuity to the young Portuguese forward. Right now, 'MD' aims that it does not exist proof that it have spoken (at least for the moment) between the two clubs on the opportunity to include to the luso in the operation.
However, it is necessary to take in consideration two important points that could 'facilitate' the arrival of the Portuguese to the Camp Nou, arrived the case. The first is that it cost 127,2 million euros to the Atleti and has not achieved a paper protagónico with the 'Cholo' Simeone. On the other hand, the Barça saves a big relation with his agent, Jorge Mendes, a point that could facilitate the negotiations, arrived the case.
The reality is that it would be an operation with more 'contras' that 'pros', as they are the things, beginning with that the Portuguese has a cotización to the level of Griezmann and his index card is notably upper to the one of Saúl (and would complicate the aim of the Barça to reduce his mass salarial to 50%, at least).
On the other hand, would have little margin to fit in the approach of Ronald Koeman, since has a similar profile to the of Griezman, that plays in the same position of Leo Messi or Memphis Depay... Something that would force to reconvert the attack and even the medullary. In definite, would be a quebradero of head achieve him a position in which it was comfortable (and probably repeat the history of Griezmann).
