The possible signing of Antoine Griezmann by the FC Barcelona is one of the big news of the last month. The Frenchman announced in a video that had decided to leave the Athletic of Madrid and since many take for granted that his destination will be the Barça. There is not at all safe and it will be necessary to expect, but the signals say that the '7' could be very near to play in Can Barça.

For the moment, it seems that Ernesto Valverde already has pronounced with the club and has left clear that it wants to to the forward of the Athletic for the next season. It explains it the daily Ace, that also aims that the 'Txingurri' already expected his arrival the past campaign. The decision of the attacker to remain in the Athletic pilló to all the world by surprise, included the extremeño.

The problem with which goes to find the ex of the Athletic is that there is a sector of the changing room that does not want that the Barça fiche to Griezmann. There are footballers that did not understand that it remained in the group rojiblanco after giving his word that ficharía by the Barcelona. Many no have forgiven it to him still and therefore it goes to be complicated to manage this situation.

It seems that the trainer barcelonista trusts that the French and Gerard Hammered are of help so that it adapt the before possible and lime asperezas with the rest of the changing room. The Catalan carries very well with the forward and his compatriots Lenglet, Dembélé, Umtiti and Todibo also could be of help. If the attacker adapts prompt and attains congeniar with Leo Messi, the Barcelona will have a lot of livestock.

Valverde Will have to look for him place

The 'Txingurri' also has the mission to find him a gap in the eleven initial. In the Athletic, Griezmann played up with total freedom, in a similar paper to the that can have in the Barça Messi. This will not be possible in Can Barça and the normal is that the technician extremeño have to plant him in the left band and keep the 4-3-3 with him, Luis Suárez and Messi.

The ex of the Real Sociedad will have to adapt to a position that does not occupy since it left of San Sebastián. Also it will have to coexist with the presence of the '10' blaugrana, that has similar movements to his. The adaptation seems that it will not be simple and Valverde will have work if finally Griezmann finish fichando by the group barcelonista.
