Antoine Griezmann is confident of securing a move to Barcelona this summer Griezmann will have to accept the terms he agreed with Barcelona last year The future of Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes will be decided this week Barcelona have no alternative centre-back targets if Matthijs de Ligt chooses to join PSG Barcelona to sign Antoine Griezmann
Antoine Griezmann will join Barcelona from Atletico Madrid this summer despite rumoured interest from Manchester United.
That’s according to Atletico CEO Gil Marin, who has known Griezmann’s future since March.
The French forward announced he would leave the La Liga club this summer.
And, after a summer of speculation last year, it appears Barcelona have finally got their man.
“We’ve known since March where [Antoine] Griezmann will play,” Marin said. “At Barcelona.”
Ivan Rakitic snubs Man Utd
Manchester United have been snubbed by Barcelona star Ivan Rakitic amid reports he is wanted by Ole Gunner Solskjaer.
The Croatia international has been approached by the Red Devils.
That’s according to reports in Spain today as United look to overhaul their squad.
But the Daily Star claim Rakitic will not be making a switch to Old Trafford this summer.
That’s because the 31-year-old has no interest in joining a team who are not in the Champions League.
Antoine Griezmann confident
Antoine Griezmann is confident of securing a move to Barcelona this summer, reports claim.
Griezmann has revealed his intentions to leave Atletico Madrid after five years but the club are yet to receive any official bids.
Barcelona were expected to swoop for the Frenchman but have so far failed to firm up their interest.
However, Mundo Deportivo claim he is confident a move will materialise once his release clause drops to £105million on July 1.
The report adds that Griezmann will have to accept the terms he agreed with Barcelona last year before his move fell through.
Andre Gomes announcement
The future of Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes will be decided this week.
That’s according to Spanish newspaper Sport, who claim an announcement could be made in a matter of days.
Gomes impressed on loan with Everton last season but West Ham are still trying to lure the Portuguese international to the London Stadium.
Sport doesn’t state which Premier League outfit are favourites to sign the 25-year-old – but do believe £26million will be enough to secure his signature.
