Griezmann was one of the Catalans’ mega transfers that made Barcelona one of the star-studded teams across Europe. With so many big-name players playing for Blaugrana, everyone thought the Catalans would be all but unstoppable but none of the three transfers lived up to expectations and now that Barca are cash dependent, it won’t come as a surprise if one or all of them are sold before the start of the next season
The former Atletico Madrid player had a difficult first season with the Catalans but improved a lot last season. A comparison of his stats from last season with those at Atletico will show that he also had one of his personal bests in 2020/21. In the end, he scored 20 goals and 13 assists in all competitions and was the second highest goalscorer behind the Catalans Lionel Messi.
Barcelona are open to the sale of Antoine Griezmann
While his stats may seem impressive, the reality of the situation is that the former World Cup winner was just too inconsistent. There were long periods of time last season when the striker wasn’t able to hit the ground at all and Ronald Koeman couldn’t even play on the pitch because of his form. Then there were times when Griezmann was absolutely unstoppable, scoring goals left and right.
Because of this, the Catalan man’s worth has risen and it would be a perfect time to take him further. The player is already 30 years old and the Catalans have already brought them with them Memphis Depay as their main number nine. Griezmann could never really fit into Barcelona’s structure and the Catalans don’t really need a striker as they now have Depay too Sergio Aguero. The Frenchman would also bring a lot of money that would help Barcelona register their new transfers.
So all in all, selling the superstar before the start of the next season seems like the best option. Here are five clubs Griezmann could fit into should he leave his current club.
