PL Golf equipment monitoring Antoine Griezmann scenario as Saul swap talks rising
Lionel Messi recently signed a new contract with FC Barcelona. This will allow him to stay in his youth club until 2026. There have been talks about FC Barcelona not being able to afford Lionel Messi’s salary but that issue has been resolved.
Messi himself has decided to cut his contract signing fees. Lionel Messi has reportedly agreed to cut his wages in half as part of the new deal. Much of it can be attributed to being lucky enough to win the Copa America!
However, this puts Antoine Griezmann in a sensitive position. The French international is currently one of the Catalan club’s highest paid footballers. And given the financial situation they are in, they are trying to fire Griezmann.
Antoine Griezmann joined FC Barcelona from La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid for a $ 120 million deal. However, he has not yet reached his optimal level at Camp Nou and had trouble finding a rhythm.
Saul Niguez and Antoine Griezmann
In 99 appearances for FC Barcelona, Antoine Griezmann has hit the net only 35 times. This is a far cry from the outrageous standards he has shown under Diego Simeone and even with the French team. Therefore, there are now talks about a return to the Wanda Metropolitano.
A number of Premier League clubs such as Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool are monitoring the situation. All three are looking for a proven striker and see Antoine Griezmann as the solution.

Although big clubs like Bayern Munich, Juventus and Paris Saint Germain along with the PL teams are still interested in Griezmann, Atletico Madrid still remain the favorite.
Much of this can be attributed to the presence of Diego Simeone. Griezmann was in the form of God between 2014 and 2019, and Simeone believes that if given the chance to bond with the French, he can recreate the magic.
FC Barcelona are currently looking for Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez under an exchange deal with Atletico Madrid. They are ready to take a £ 107million loss to Antoine Griezmann.
However, it needs to be pointed out what will Saul Niguez bring to the game? With players like Frenkie De Jong and Sergio Busquets in their ranks, Saul Niguez can bring an offensive dimension to midfield.
Both De Jong and Busquets are anchor-man-style players and will rule the game. They won’t break into defense like Saul Niguez, however. Niguez can serve as a link between midfield and striker.
One thing that FC Barcelona still remember is that they don’t want to see Griezmann at a La Liga club. They would love to see him out of the country after what happened to Luis Suarez.
