Following reports that Barcelona could not register new signing before reducing their salaries, Ronald Koeman’s team is under pressure to release big names this summer.
Players like Junior Firpo, Carles Alena, and Jean-Clair Todibo have all been promoted, but some of the club’s top earners such as Griezmann, Philippe Coutinho, and Ousmane Dembele have also been linked with a move away.
According to Sport, Chelsea could move to Antieno Griezmann as an alternative to Erling Braut Haaland, but Barcelona are willing to send him on loan for the 2021-22 campaign.
The report also adds that Chelsea will have to claim every Griezmann ‘s salary while on West London books, with the Blues leading the way despite interest in Griezmann’s old club Atletico Madrid, who don’t have much financial support.
The striker scored 1 goal for France at Euro 2020 and finished the 2020-21 season with 20 goals and provided 13 assists which helped in his name from 51 games in all competitions last season.
