Mercato – Mercato: Antoine Griezmann, the transfer of the last chance


For several months, Antoine Griezmann has been far from his best level despite a return to Atlético Madrid. A departure this summer is possible to revive and it is perhaps the game of musical chairs of the transfer window that will help him.

Third in the Golden Ball in 2016 and 2018, Antoine Griezmann is not present in the 30 named this year. It’s hardly a surprise as his level has not been up to par for several months. His transfer to Barcelona marked a break in his progress and we feel he is affected by the failure experienced in Catalonia. Even a return to Atlético where he had a blast from 2014 to 2019 did not change anything. Antoine Griezmann’s football is sick and all of football in France is concerned. The World Cup is approaching and he remains a major player in Didier Deschamps’ eleven.

Newcastle on Isak, Real Sociedad thinks of Griezmann

Some observers point to the fact that a transfer could get the Frenchman out of this mess. However, no offers or possibilities have appeared since the start of the transfer window. But, sometimes all it takes is one move to unlock everything. Newcastle could indirectly change Grizou’s fate. The Magpies want to sign striker Alexander Isak. They are also ready to give 47 million euros for the Swede of Real Sociedad, which claims at least 60 million.

According to Spanish media Fichajes, the Basque club are already considering a replacement in case the transfer takes place. He thinks in particular of his former darling, Antoine Griezmann. The Frenchman was unearthed, trained and then launched by Real Sociedad where he played as a pro from 2010 to 2014. His performances had been noticed in Europe and had opened the doors to the French team. A doable homecoming since Atlético Madrid is not against parting with it. However, his imposing salary will not be easy to assume for the San Sebastian club. A heavy effort for a remarriage can be beneficial for both parties.
