Antoine Griezmann hasn’t shown much in the Barcelona jersey in his first season.
The French striker arrived as a major reinforcement, but only rarely showed why the Catalan club had set aside EUR 120 million for him.
Lately, there has been much discussion about the 29-year-old Frenchman ‘s potential departure. He has linked with a variety of groups, but none of that can happen.
Yesterday Griezmann and his representatives met with leaders from Barcelona led by Eric Abidal. The French footballer was convinced after all that he would be counted on next season and that there is no question that the club would like to sell him.
“We are counting on you and next season very seriously,” the message Abidal sent to Griezmann at the meeting, says L’Equipe.
Griezmann has played a total of 44 matches this season for the Catalan giants, scoring 15 goals and four assists.
