Looks like Leo Messi has told Barcelona FC who he believes should replace Neymar!
Usually when you are big name footballer you must dream of playing for either Real Madrid or Barcelona. These two Spanish clubs have hosted some of the greatest names that have ever played the game.
There is a saying that if Barcelona or Real Madrid come calling for you you better take it other wise they may never come back again. Most players profuse their love for their current club but get their heads turned when the call comes from Spain.
But one such player who has not yet been turned is French superstar Antoine Griezmann.
The darling of French football, Greizmann broke out into a global star after his sparkling performances in Euro 2016. After a brilliant season with Atletico, Griezmann backed it up with his national side as he was instrumental in France’s road to the final.
The English media was sure that Greizmann would leave Spain and join Manchester United last summer, as it was said the United had saved the number seven jersey for the forward. But it did not come to fruition as the forward remained at Atletico.
But now it seems as if Barcelona have found a secret clause that could see them capture the forward on a cheap deal.
It is said that Greizmann has a release clause of 100 million that needs to activated before July 1st. But after that date, the clause could go as high at 200 million.
Barcelona realize that they will need to act fast if they want to buy the forward, which is why they will be looking to jump ahead of the queue before July 1st.
