After several months airing the interest for Antoine Griezmann the president of FC Barcelona, ​​ Josep Maria Bartomeu has shown something more restrained in an interview granted to Catalunya Ràdio. Predictably, he was asked about the possible signing of Atlético de Madrid's French striker: “As you understand, I can not talk about this topic, we have the utmost respect for the players who work in other clubs.”

Bartomeu says that the first thing will be “to close the folder of this season, which ends when June ends”; “and then, on July 1, we see the next one”. That day the clause of rescission of Griezmann's contract with Atlético goes down to 100 million euros.

When the interviewer, Mònica Terribas, asked him if he would like to have Griezmann at the Camp Nou, Bartomeu replied: “All the Catalans like the best in the world to play in their club, but that It is impossible to think that Barça already has very good players, as has been demonstrated this season. ”

Griezmann has doubts

Griezmann has an agreement with FC Barcelona, ​​which is determined to pay the 100 million . However, the player has his doubts and came to say to some colleagues that he will stay at Atlético, which has presented him with a millionaire offer. This was proved in the last game of the League, against Eibar, when the defender Diego Godín approached the step of the Metropolitan Wanda to ask that the whistles stop against him: “Griezmann is going to stay”, In the last days, Griezmann has refused to comment on the matter, especially after the victory in the Europa League, in which he was the big star with two goals. A few weeks ago in France expressed his desire to define his future before the World Cup in Russia 2018, something that does not fit the deadlines set by Bartomeu: the tournament begins on June 14.
