Lionel Messi backs massive deal to create Barca’s fantastic four

Barcelona’s pursuit of Antoinne Griezmnn has taken a new turn as the Cataluniyan giants look set to land the French striker come next season.

Diario Gol and The Express report that Ernesto Valverde may be looking forward to trading Ousmane Dembele for the highly rated striker. Griezmann has 9 assists and 13 goals this season- not too good by his lofty standards but he has established his class with his performances.

The report says that Lionel Messi fully supports the deal and wants to see the Atletico Madrid star at Barcelona. Messi’s impression of Dembele has been talked of and the answers have been negative throughout.

Dembele has not had the best season this term after forcing a move to Camp Nou. The winger has been hit by injuries and has underperformed very often this term. The recent development will be a massive blow to the youngsters prospect at Barca.


Author’s take


Dembele should have really not forced the move to Barcelona when he was at a club like Borussia Dortmund- famed for their amazing history of producing young stars. Dembele may be the costliest flop signing in recent history. For Barcelona fan though, an attack with Griezmann, Suarez, Messi and Coutinho is just a dream come true.
