Barca president Joan Laporta has made new statements regarding Antoine Griezmann.
Antoine Griezmann’s situation at Barça seems to be rocking from one side to the other and evolving every day in a different direction.
“Griezmann is a pro”
While Barça is doing everything to reduce its payroll in order to offer a pharaonic contract to Lionel Messi, a sale of the former star of Real Sociedad was mentioned by the Catalan media, but also and above all, by the president of Barça, Joan Laporta.
The latter nevertheless offered a new about-face concerning the Frenchman’s case. A spectacular back-pedaling in view of his remarks mentioning an imminent departure from the French international, a few weeks ago.
Not to miss
“Griezmann is happy with the staff, he’s a professional, he fights like the other players. This is a situation to which we are open because in the market there was interest in him and everything remains the same. If the player does not see an offer he wants to accept, we will have to honor his contract, ”said the Barcelona president during the presentation of Emerson Royal, the latest Blaugrana signing.
Laporta also spoke about the transfer window of the Catalan club, being very clear about possible new arrivals: “I would not like to focus on a single player, if there are no departures, there is no there will be more incorporations. We are not in a strong position to make investments ”. This is crystal clear.
Griezmann therefore now seems well on his way to continuing his journey with the Blaugrana team in the coming season. A lot of noise for nothing ?
