Antoine Griezmann, the alternative that Manchester City is considering, can contribute to Lionel Messi's renewal in Barcelona.
According to the English media, the French striker would be the plan B of leadership that hopes to hire a giant of the Premier League.
As international competitions at the national team level (Copa América and Eurocopa) progress, the clubs continue to work for the next season with additions and exits in a transfer market that is already giving something to talk about renowned signings such as Agüero's. , Jordan Sancho (Manchester United) or Sergio Ramos (possibly PSG)
The most active so far is FC Barcelona, which is obliged to reduce its wage bill to complete the renewal of Lionel Messi. According to the English press, another necessary negotiation could take place from the coffers of this institution.
Just as the Barça leadership tries to reinforce itself with big names, so do the other powerful in Europe, Manchester City, who would be seeing in Antoine Griezmann a plan B for his forward after the departure of Kun.
The citizen club has Tottenham striker Harry Kane on its radar, who on more than one occasion showed his willingness to leave the London entity to land in a place where he can fight for titles and trophies. In parallel, Pep Guardiola himself praised the qualities of the 27-year-old footballer in various press conferences.
However, the operation could be complicated when understanding that Spurs would not sell their star gunner to one of their direct rivals in the Premier League. If they did, it would be for a figure higher than those estimated.
That is why they would already be devising a plan B that already has a first and last name from Manchester. The French attacker Antoine Griezmann is liked by the coach, and his signing could be more accessible due to the difficult financial situation that the Barça entity is going through.
In his arduous task to reduce the wage bill, the departure of the French player would deflate the millionaire sum that is spent on salaries since he is one of the best paid on the squad behind Lionel Messi.
The City, meanwhile, could approach the signing with several options. Although he can pay the total amount of a corresponding transfer, he could also include some names in the negotiation that would interest the Catalan team, such as Aymeric Laporte, Joao Cancelo, or Bernardo Silva.
