It was close in the summer, and something suggests that the affair between Antoine Griezmann and FC Barcelona is about to be revived.
It is without doubt one of transfervinduets big topics of conversation, and maybe it even ends with a marriage this time.
In any case, writes the Spanish newspaper El Mundo Deportivo, the 28-year-old frenchman is ready to eat a pay cut to come to the Camp Nou.
According to the newspaper having Griezmann have regretted, that he, last summer decided to stay in the Spanish hovedstadsklub.
He had given his word to the Barcelona president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, but it managed Atlético-the management and the coach Diego Simeone to convince him that he should stay in Madrid.
They wanted, that the frenchman should lead them to Champions League triumph at home on Wanda Metropolitano, where this season's finale is played, but Atlético Madrid were in the 1/8-finals sent out of the tournament by Juventus.
It should also be a contributing factor to that Griezmann again looking towards Barcelona, since there is nothing to suggest that This team is able to take the last step.

He made a documentary with the title ’La Decisión (the decision-ed.) for its consideration last summer.
It ended with an extension - probably helped along by the about 170 million. kr. (net!), as Atlético pay him for a year's work.
IN FC Barcelona he will not be able to earn quite the same. Griezmann can, if a switch becomes a reality, look forward to get ca. 120 million. kr. per year after tax.

Antoine Griezmann was earlier in the week in cash, when he once again was faced with Barça-the rumor:
- It is the same every year. I'm used to it and tired of it.
Antoine Griezmanns current frikøbsklausul is on the astronomical 1.5 billion. kr., but 1. July will fall to almost 900 million. kr.
