Filipe Luis: 100 million for Griezmann is cheap

Filipe Luis: 100 million for Griezmann is cheap

He added: "I also told [Bartomeu] that in the chance the player exercises his right to nullify his contract due to their pressure throughout the season, that Atletico Madrid would demand Barcelona compensation for their inappropriate behaviour". Spanish media is rife with reports that Griezmann will soon be on his way to Camp Nou to join Lionel Messi.

"I see Griezmann is okay, he's working as well as usual and playing as well as usual so that's it".

"We're fed up with Barcelona's attitude", Gil Marin said. That acknowledgement came after Barcelona spokesman Guillermo Amor said in December that "there could have been an approach" made by the club.

The Catalans should be able to recoup that money as it's rumoured Luis Suarez will make way for Griezmann should he arrive in the summer.

The France global can operate in numerous positions, whether that be as the most advanced player, high up on either flank or, as he has been doing so effectively for Atletico, in support of a centre-forward.

"He's been the most crucial player this year but we've assisted him to be like he is".

Growing reactions against USA for withdrawing from nuclear deal
The United States can't kill a deal all by itself that four other nations plus the European Union are all involved in. In addition to tearing up the deal, Trump announced a re-imposition - and strengthening - of sanctions against Iran.


Suarez, talking as if the deal was already done, said that Griezmann will be "welcome" at Barca and Bartomeu confirmed that he met with the Atletico player's agent last October. This club has shown many things but it's not just Griezmann.

Atletico coach Diego Simeone, however, declined to comment directly about the situation on Wednesday, only saying that Griezmann "is training well as always".

Griezmann has insisted he wants his future resolved before the start of the World Cup, amid speculation the striker is set for a move to Barcelona.

"I want to go to Russian Federation with a clear head", he told L'Equipe in March. A few months ago, I personally expressed to [Bartomeu] that our player isn't for sale nor are we going to sell him. Unless Manchester City agree to a very low fee then there'd be little point in Atletico paying a lot for a player who turns 30 this year, and who is on record about his desire to go back home. That ban ended in January.

But Atletico Madrid isn't happy with Barcelona.

Griezmann missed a penalty kick during a loss in the Champions League final against Real Madrid in 2016.
