Antoine Griezmann has but to win a league title in his profession, becoming a member of Atletico Madrid simply after their 2013-14 La Liga triumph
La Liga champions Atletico Madrid have re-signed ahead Antoine Griezmann from Barcelona on a one-year mortgage deal.
Atletico can pay the participant’s wages and there’s a obligatory clause to make the switch everlasting.
The France worldwide scored 133 objectives in 257 video games for Atletico, leaving in 2019 after Barcelona paid his £107m buyout clause.
However the 30-year-old scored simply 35 objectives in 102 video games and managed to win solely received the Copa del Rey with Barca.
He’s the eleventh participant to depart financially struggling Barcelona this summer time, together with Lionel Messi.
Barcelona needed to let their all-time prime goalscorer depart to suit inside La Liga’s wage construction, and Messi joined Paris St-Germain.
Griezmann is the third switch deadline day sale from Barcelona. Proper-back Emerson Royal joined Tottenham for £25.8m and teenage midfielder Ilaix Moriba moved to RB Leipzig for £13.7m.
Final summer time, Atletico signed striker Luis Suarez from Barcelona and he helped Diego Simeone’s facet win La Liga.
Chelsea signed Spain midfielder Saul Niguez, 26, from Atletico on a season-long mortgage deal.
Essentially the most baffling factor for me is that but once more, like they did with Luis Suarez final summer time, Barcelona are simply strengthening the squad of their opponents for the title.
Griezmann was not completely satisfied at Barca, however you’re giving one in all your direct opponents for the title – and one of many different huge golf equipment in Spain – one in all your greatest gamers arguably, a implausible participant, and also you don’t get something in alternate.
I don’t know who makes these selections, however I discover them loopy selections. Unbelievable.
