Atlético de Madrid are interested in Antoine Griezmann, but they will not go crazy for the Frenchman. The colchoneros accept to transfer Saúl Ñíguez for the Frenchman, but they do not want to pay more money and they know that it is Barça who has all the pressure
The Athletic of Madrid knows that the one who has the frying pan by the mango in the barter Antoine Griezmann/Saúl Ñíguez is his club and does not have any haste for completing the operation. The colchoneros, as it aims 'Sportive World', are interested in the French and want to have him of turn. However, neither much less they will go back crazy by him, since it is not a signing prioritario and until does some days not even hinder in his plans.
The Cholo Simeone wants to retell with his ex pupilo and is insisting for this, but in the club rojiblanco are conscious that deportivamente speaking 'The Principito' is more a complement of luxury that a need. Joao Félix, Ángel Correa, Lemar or even Marcos Llorente already cover this place of second forward or of extreme and the Frenchman would arrive to go up the level and complete a forward of dream.
By this reason, are had to renounce to Saúl, that was in the market and that had a foot in Liverpool until does some days, but will not throw the house by the window by Antoine. For example, from Wanda descartan completely that Joan Félix can go in in this barter, that is the big aim of Joan Laporta. Besides, the Atleti does not want to pay an alone additional euro by the one of Macon, although his value is greater that the one of Ñíguez.
Instead, from the Camp Nou himself have a lot of haste and there is a lot of interest in that this operation go out advance. The Barcelona need to remove of on the wage of Griezmann, that earns around 20 million euros, to be able to fulfil the limit salarial that demand from LaLiga. If there are not sales neither reduces the mass salarial, Leo Messi will not be able to continue in spite of the agreement that already there is with him, and even there will be problems to inscribe to the new signings.
By all this, is the Barça the one who is right now more interested in completing the deal. The Catalans need to accelerate his 'operation gone out' and give off of 'Grizzy' is fundamental for his plan to retain to Messi. Therefore, in the Athletic think that to measure that happen the days the requirements of the Barcelona could go down by the pressure. Now, the barcelonistas ask of 15 to 20 million euros in addition to to Saúl, but in Madrid trust that they go down his pretences sooner that late.
The Athletic could descartar to Griezmann if the Barça asks too much
If the culés decide to ask less by the French, is possible that the barter confirm to the little time. However, if the demands keep on being high, is possible that the colchoneros prefer descartar the operation and remain as they are. With the signings of Rodrigo Of Paul and Marcos Paulo, that will play in band, the ones of Simeone could give his plantel by enclosed waiting for a '9'.
