Griezmann has been nothing short of sensational ever since his 30 million euro move from Real Sociedad to Atletico Madrid.
He has been on Barcelona’s radar for the last couple of years but it never happened for him. But it looks like his move to Barcelona will finally be completed at the end of this season.

Later she visited the neighbourhood of Pedralbes which is right in the centre of the city and both Ousmane Dembele and Neymar have lived there.
Barcelona are sitting pretty on top of the La Liga table but Catalans are very wary of Real Madrid’s ambitions for array of big money transfers for next season. Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde is reportedly prepared to pay
100 million euro release clause set by Atletico for Griezmann.
Griezmann had scored an absurd seven goals in his two previous fixtures but couldn’t find the net at the Camp Nou last week. Atletico were 5 points below Barcelona in league table before the match and a win against them would have opened La Liga title wide open.
Barcelona have already spent heavily in acquiring the services of exuberant Demble and proficient Coutinho to fill in Neymar’s shoes. Since Suarez’s declining attacking prowess and Real Madrid constantly striving for more, Griezmann’s move will be perfect for Blaugrana as he will fit perfectly in front of goal with likes of Messi.
