¿Griezmann is as good as sold? I finally ended the culebrón, and France will play for FC Barcelona, after paying his club FC Barcelona clause 120 millions of euros. It puts an end to an affair that began a year ago and after many comings and goings, He has ended with former Real Sociedad and Atletico, in Camp Nou.
And the history of the French player was the drama of the summer 2018, although in the end after a show and a documentary (produced by Gerard Piqué) and a subsequent hours of debate, Antoine Griezmann decided to stay at Atletico Madrid signing a renewal now, one year later, He has remained a dead letter.
But Griezmann is so good, top player?
Gallic front has a high level, It is true. But also talent, Is it a top player?, A global superclass and want to sell? The truth is that when his team needed him, in the decisive stretch of the season for Atletico Madrid, He was not the player who made the difference and he decided matches for his team.
Without going further, last season in the qualifying round of the Champions League against Juve, where he was seen nor was he waited. Own expectations perhaps a disproportionate or excessive ego by marketing and media that lead back (Like many other current players), the player even said after becoming one of the best paid players in the world, what “eating at the same table as Cristiano and Messi”. Coming to say that was one of the global superclass.
His reality in the last year said the opposite. In the 2018-19 without going further, French played 47 League matches between, Cup and Champions and marked 21 goals (15 League, 4 in Champions League 2 Cup). These figures are far and much of world level a player TOP. We'll see if that assumption proves Barca level.
