Antoine Griezmann is reconsidering Barcelona this summer – despite his public involvement with Atletico Madrid last year – after his current game was knocked out of the Champions League on Tuesday-evening.
After gaining a 2-0 overall advantage in the second leg in Turin, Atletico was beaten 3-0 in the night thanks to a Cristiano Ronaldo hat trick, who ensured a 3-2 overall victory for the Bianconeri and Atleti from the match.
The loss put an end to the hope of Griezmann and Atletico to win the Champions League one more season, and just four days later the title of the La Liga title got a huge blow as they lost 2-0 to Athletic Bilbao.
As a result, Barca has the opportunity to extend his lead in the competition to 10 points with only 10 games in the season – although they do take a trip to Real Betis to negotiate to do this.
Atletico & # 39; s season seems to be far from over, and according to French newspaper L & # 39; Equipe, Griezmann's time in Wanda Metropolitano was also over – now that he is reviewing the move to Barcelona that he rejected last summer.
Griezmann ended the rumors by concluding a new deal with Atletico, which lasted until 2023, but the 27-year-old has reportedly changed his mind and is looking for the move.
Interestingly, the current deal to which Griezmann is bound is one There is a € 200 million safeguard clause attached to it – although it is reported that it will fall to a more affordable amount € 120m at the end of the current season.
Whether Barcelona will get a sequel with their own interest from last year remains to be seen.
