Atletico Madrid ace, Antonie Griezmann’s wife has reportedly started house hunting in Barcelona as a move to Spanish Giants edges closer.
Antonie Griezmann was identified as Manchester United and Barcelona’s number one transfer target back in summer. But despite either clubs’ effort, the striker stayed in Madrid after Los Rojiblancos were handed a transfer ban by FIFA.
Back in summer, United signed Lukaku and in January they signed Alexis Sanchez, eventually reducing their interest in Griezmann a bit, which has handed the advantage to Barcelona, as the Catalan Giants look forward to bolstering of there squad for the upcoming competitions.
Griezmann Was Identified As United’s And Barcelona’s No.1 Transfer Target Back In Summer.
As Manchester United are all set to miss on him for the second consecutive year, Barcelona is ready to pounce as early this summer. Earlier it was said that Barcelona will have to pay around £175 Million for the Frenchmen.
But according to some reports, his release clause has dropped from £175 Million to £100 Million, which should help facilitate his move to Barcelona, where he’ll join Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho.
Barcelona has been pretty rampant in the transfer market of late. Including the £80 Million signing bonus Lionel Messi received for signing a new contract, Barcelona has now spent close to £350 Million in last one year on transfers.
