Griezmann Talks Neymar Barcelona Transfer Saga and Love For Liverpool FC
FC Barcelona’s new signing Antoine Griezmann believes that the Catalan giants will find it difficult to secure a comeback deal for Neymar Jr. from French champions PSG.
Reports over the weekend had it that the Barca had offered £90m plus two players for the Brazilian forward but those reports have been rubbished by Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo, saying that no concrete offer has been table for the forward.
Griezmann completed a move from Atletico Madrid to FC Barcelona during this summer transfer window for a fee that is still been disputed by Atletico Madrid and the Frenchman believes Neymar’s return will be much more difficult to complete.
“We have to get it done first, because it is a difficult transfer.
“But he is a great player, he’s had a couple of injuries but is at an incredible level.
“We also have [Ousmane] Dembele, [Philippe] Coutinho and Malcom who are also important players for us and lets hope we can achieve great things with them.”
