Market: Griezmann, Bara will drag Atletico to justice!  – Soccer

To force Atletico Madrid to pay the option to purchase striker Antoine Griezmann, set at € 40 million, FC Barcelona intend to take legal action. An approach that shouldn’t help the sporting situation of the French national team …

Market: Griezmann, the Bar

Antoine Griezmann finds himself in a complex situation.

28, 28, 26, 27 and 29. Here, in minutes, are the playing times (excluding extra time) of forward Antoine Griezmann, on loan from FC Barcelona to Atletico Madrid, since the start of the season. At the request of his management, Madrid manager Diego Simeone uses the French international as a simple joker at the end of the game.

A strategy by the Colchoneros not to activate his purchase option, set at 40 million euros and automatic if the 2018 world champion participates in 50% of his team’s matches (at least 45 minutes).

The Bara will take legal action!

Unsurprisingly, the furious Blaugranas do not appreciate the methods of the Rojiblancos, who thus press for a permanent move from the Mcon native at a more affordable price. And according to information from the Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo, the reigning vice-champion of Spain will even bring the Madrid club to court!

Bara, in fact, wants to force Atletico to pay the expected 40 million euros, explaining that the activation of this purchase option depended exclusively on Griezmann’s playing time in the first year of the loan. Why such a position? Because the Habs were initially subject to a temporary transfer of one year, and then automatically extended by a further year if the latter played 50% of the games.

The big loser? Griezmann …

Of course, with such an approach, Barcelona can also bluff to find common ground behind the scenes with Atletico. But in the meantime the situation seems to be blocked anyway with great tensions between the two teams. And very clearly, there is currently a big loser in this story: Griezmann. Despite the interesting sporting performances (3 goals in 5 games in all competitions), the Frenchman has no chance to regain regularity. A difficult condition for the 31-year-old player to accept and live with as the 2022 World Cup approaches …
