Barcelona consider swapping unsettled stinker Antoine Griezmann with Neymar

The Atletico Madrid arrival could be set to end his Barcelona spell very soon.

Neymar wanted to leave PSG for Barcelona during the summer, but the Catalan giants spent money on Antoine Griezmann instead.

Barcelona are reportedly considering using Antoine Griezmann as part of a possible deal that would see Neymar move back to the club from Paris Saint-Germain next summer. 

According to Le10Sport, the Blaugrana are still keen to sign Neymar after a failed pursuit of the player ahead of the current campaign. It’s suggested that Griezmann could be included in a potential transfer as a makeweight, that despite the fact he only joined Barcelona from Atletico Madrid this summer in a £107 million move.

Griezmann recently spoke about the early days of his time at Barcelona and said it’s been “difficult” for him to get to know star man Lionel Messi due to their introverted personalities; in response, Messi said that he “obviously” has no issue with the France international. It is said that, also over at the Nou Camp, club chiefs are beginning to have doubts.

Neymar reportedly thinks Paris Saint-Germain will accept a transfer offer from Barcelona that would see Antoine Griezmann move to the Parc des Princes. The Brazil international was eager to seal a return to the Nou Camp during the summer but, ultimately, failed to get his move.

Neymar has flourished for PSG in the time since while Griezmann has struggled at Barcelona, managing just three goals so far.
